Orange City demonstrates the danger of fire

The danger of fire was demonstrated in a controlled way up in Orange City this morning.

The Grinnell Mutual insurance company conducted a live fire research burn up.

Five burn cell demonstrations consisted of accidental and intentional causes to allow people to see the beginning stage of a fire through it's completion.

Senior Investigator Zack Spykerman spoke about the benefits and goals of this program.

"That's the biggest thing, just the training so getting that research and training out to people and maybe dispelling some myths that people have thought about fire...on what fire can and cannot do", Spykerman said.

Before the demonstrations were completed, a free class was taught to show how a fire grows and develops.

The program was geared towards the police and fire department as well as insurance personnel, however, anyone was welcome to attend.
