BGFD practicing fire training at old Pizza Hut building

BOWLING GREEN, Ky.-If you see firefighters at the old Pizza Hut on Scottsville Road this week, have no fear…it’s just a drill!

The Bowling Green Fire Department is using the structure for training before it’s torn down. 

Today until Friday, all units will practice responding to a fire inside, putting it out, and rescuing victims. 

It’s a great drill for the firefighters-it’s a building they’re unfamiliar with and helps them prepare for future fire situations. 

“We don’t know this layout, we are coming out here with a training and it’s their first time experiencing it so it’s like a real life scenario when they come out here,” said BGFD PIO Katie McKee. 

The fire department has also practiced rappelling and other fire drills this week.
