If you are driving on the Parkway or Third Street near Reed Lane in Bend today, and you see columns of smoke or even flames, don't panic. Bend Fire and Rescue is conducting a structural fire training exercise at an abandoned donated house on Reed Lane. Bend Fire Deputy Fire Marshal Cindy Kettering says about 30 firefighters from Bend, Sunriver and Cloverdale sharpening their skills at fighting a live fire. "What we'll be doing is we'll take this house that has been inspected and insured that it meets applicable safety and environmental rules, and we'll be burning this house in controlled phases. During the morning hours, they'll be making small interior attacks; they'll extinguish the fire and they'll re-ignite it. So during the afternoon, we will be letting the structure burn." Kettering says the most visible smoke will be in the afternoon. She asks motorists please, do not cause traffic problems by slowing down to see what is happening.  The exercise should be done by 6 p-m.
