“This is why you never play with fire,” a Godfrey firefighter told a crowd of children gathered to watch a training exercise. Fire Chief Eric Kambarian supervised the training, stating “there is nothing like on-the-job training.” The home belonged to Dr. Bruce Vest and was beyond repair. Rather than have it torn down, he donated it to the Godfrey Fire Protection District for training. Following Environmental Protection Agency and safety guidelines, fires were set and extinguished.
