Charles City, Iowa – You might have come across quite the scary scene at 301 S Johnson in Charles City on Sunday morning.

The Charles City and Marble Rock fire departments teamed up on a training exercise at the home, owned by the City of Charles City which has been vacant for the past year.

The firefighters used the opportunity to learn how to run certain hoses, how to protect the exterior and also trees.
