A fiery experience for Times intern

September 11, 2013

SOUTH KINGSTOWN – On Sunday, the South Kingstown Fire Department opened their training grounds to the public for a demonstration of their work.
As I pulled my car onto the grounds of the training center, I couldn’t help but notice the large concrete structure on my right side. The exterior was layered with dark black soot, and it looked like a scene from a movie.
I drove past the building and put my car in park. When I looked to my left, I noticed that the car parked there had been completely destroyed, presumably for training purposes.
