Fight fire with fire training

A Maxwell firefighter sprays water onto a burning house west of Maxwell on Sunday morning. The fire was part of a training exercise for the department. The owner, Rich Leners, said he recently purchased the property and that the house and a nearby chicken shed were in such disrepair he offered them to the fire department for training. Leners said he plans to clean up the property and place it back on the market. Photo by Michael Crumb/Ames Tribune
