The Kinde and Port Austin Fire Departments received valuable training on Saturday when they assisted a farmland owner on Thomas Road northwest of Kinde to clear the grounds of an old farmhouse.

Flames and smoke were visible from Kinde Road as the house, located south of Oak Beach Road, burned on Saturday afternoon.

A front-end loader took over after firefighters finished, smashing through what was left of the house as it continued to burn.
