Oak Bluffs firefighters will practice firefighting and rescue techniques under realistic conditions this Sunday morning, February 9. Acting fire chief John Rose said firefighters will set fires in a house located at 255 Massachusetts Avenue off East Chop that was recently sold and is scheduled to be torn down.

The drill will afford firefighters a realistic practice scenario, Mr. Rose said. The drill is scheduled to begin at approximately 8:30 am and finish about 1 pm.
