There was this old boxcar in our open space that we needed to get rid. of. Nobody wanted it. So we called the fire department and it turns out they burn these types of things as training exercises from time to time. So we scheduled it and let them come and burn it down!
We were standing a good distance back but if you walked closer, you couldn’t believe the heat that comes off of something that size when it burns. I don’t know how the fireman do it.
