Santa Maria firefighters are training in live fires, while burning down buildings to make room for future apartments.


The city of Santa Maria Fire Department will intentionally burn two downtown buildings in a series of technical live fire exercises and firefighter training programs. 

The building locations are 518 and 600 East Boone Street, near the city's transit center. The two single-story former commercial/office buildings are being burned and demolished to make room for the future 262-unit Hancock Terrace apartment project.

The property owner donated the buildings to the department.
