      Firefighters plan training exercise with vacant buildings

      Some vacant residential buildings in Marquette County will be used for fire training on Saturday, June 22.

      The Marquette County Firefighters Association will be conducting a county wide fire training exercise from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. this Saturday. The Marquette County Land Bank Authority owns 15 vacant buildings in Sawyer and Gwinn and has scheduled them for demolition this summer. Two of those buildings will be used for fire training.

      According to the firefighters association, 10 departments are expected to participate in the training.
