  • Barr property burn delayed

    Twenty-seven members of the Miami Township Fire-Rescue squad participated in a controlled burn of the Rabbit Run farmhouse on Dayton Street all day Saturday, Aug. 7. The event was a training exercise led by Fire Chief Colin Altman, which lasted from 9 a.m. until about 4 p.m. and included four new fire instructors, including locals Chris Kitts and Lee Gillespie, who recently completed courses taught by Assistant Fire Chief Denny Powell at the Greene County Career Center. The department brought two fire engines, a tanker, a rescue truck and an ambulance for safety in the face of temperatures that climbed to 800–900 degrees. Five firefighters from Xenia and Sugarcreek Townships also participated.

    The controlled burn of the Barr property on Xenia Avenue has been rescheduled for May 5.
