EDISON, NJ – It’s not every day that firefighters are given the opportunity to conduct real world training, but on Thursday Edison Firefighters had the opportunity to hone their skills in a controlled environment before a local home was scheduled for demolition.

The home at 301 Plainfield Road in Edison was purchased by Hawkeye Developers of Edison and they are planning to build four new homes on the property according to a posting on Facebook.

The home was once owned by Muriel Harris, who died around 2009. Her husband owned Harris Structural Steel in South Plainfield.

On hand to observe the firefighters in actions were Councilmen Robert Karabinchak and Michael Lombardi and Freeholder Charles Tomaro along with fire department training officers Battalion Chief Borwegen and Captain Maurath. Chief Latham was in attendance observing the drill.
