Practicing in "smoke" filled house - 3/2004

  We want to say thanks to Mr. Bishop for allowing us to use the house he was tearing down to practice "Smoke Filled House" exercises.  The house is filled with "party" smoke to prevent any injuries during practice.

What it looks inside a Smoke Filled House

You will notice that the only thing easy to see is the reflective tape

If this were "live" smoke, you would NOT be able to breathe

After we were finished using the house for practice, and the roof and garage had been pushed in, we did a controlled burn of the remains.

Fire started around 8:20AM
