The Covington Fire Department douses the fire ignited in this structure at the Newton College and Career Academy Friday morning, demonstrating how quickly a home without a home sprinkler system or smoke alarm could become engulfed in flames in the event of a fire. The fire department was given a $1,500 grant from the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition to demonstrate the importance of installing a sprinkler system. Students from the Career Academy helped build the two structures for the controlled burn. (Staff photo: Jessicah Peters)
