Sheridan Fire-Rescue Department held an open house Saturday, all part of this year's National Fire Prevention Week. It was a day devoted to families, teaching them about fire prevention. Fire Marshal Brian Songer...

There was an abundance of activities for the kids who were there.

There were also tours of the station and its equipment, fire truck rides, a tour through the burn trailer where firefighters are trained, and a free bar-b-q. The highlight of the day was a live burn demonstration. Songer explains.

This year's theme is having “Have 2 Ways Out,” and focuses on having two fire escape plans for your home and practicing them.
