Cedar Rapids firefighters will perform a controlled burn at a training home on Tuesday morning.

The exercise will begin at 9 a.m., at a house located at 1020 30th St. NE. It is a one story, 912 sq. foot building they've used for several weeks, after it was donated to the department.

The owners are clearing the land for new construction.

Fire departments are typically limited to two training burns per year. In the event of high winds, the burn will be rescheduled.
