BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) -

Bainbridge Fire crews are looking for 'bad' buildings, by that they mean vacant and willing to be donated.

Bainbridge Public Safety is asking property owners who own vacant, dilapidated, or buildings set to be demolished to think about donating them for fire suppression training.

Fire Chief Doyle Welch said these structures are the best practice for local firefighters.

"Got training fires we do in metal boxes and stuff, but it's not the same as a real house. These structures are just like we're fighting fires and it's a real house," said Welch.

Welch said one benefit to the owners is that after training, crews will remove the building for you, saving you demolition costs and landfill fees.
