Aurora firefighters will be conducting a live-burn training exercise beginning at 9 a.m. Friday at a home on the corner of Church Road and Indian Trail.

Firefighters will be burning the old, pink, aluminum-sided home as part of their ongoing training. The house, which will be used for the exercise, was recently ruined by renters and will be burned down entirely. The training will last until Friday evening.
