Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany firefighters burned an abandoned house to the ground Monday morning, but their purpose behind the fire was anything but sinister.

Fire crews are working to keep their training sharp by using the blaze as a tool to improve.

Flames shot high through the windows and roof of the house on Byron Road as officials continued training drills.

The Albany Fire Department chose to conduct the burn and training as part of an arson awareness program.
