This old, dilapidated house at 1245 School Road in McKinleyville will be burned by the Arcata Fire Department as part of a live fire training starting at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, July 17. The house is being destroyed to make way for a new subdivision. Years ago, the developer offered to give the house away for free if someone would remove it. However, the house is in poor condition and there were no takers. The Arcata Fire Department is warning nearby residents to close their windows Saturday if they are sensitive to smoke.
