Tiffin fire department gets rare controlled burn opportunity

TIFFIN– It was a windy Sunday morning when Tiffin volunteer firefighters struck the spark that set Terry Potter’s boyhood home aflame.

“This was the only day that fit into our schedule,” said Detert, “and it’s a good opportunity to practice exposure protection in the wind.”
