This was part of the annual Prairie Township Food Truck and Fire Prevention Festival held on Oct. 3. The EDITH House was borrowed from the Whitehall Fire Department and uses a smoke machine to simulate a smoke filled house. Firefighters were inside helping visitors understand procedures such as getting low, carefully touching door handles, and using a window when available.
