Hopefully, if conditions are right, we'll be able to watch the progression of the fire before we put it out and give them the experience of seeing how fire can grow and how ventilation will affect the fire.">Fire Department officials chose to do the burn on a Sunday so Main Street traffic would be fairly light.They expect the burn to start at about 9 a.m. and it could last several hours.While it’s burning, one side of Main Street will be closed to traffic.
