Correction on behind which church: Was behind Sacred Heart Catholic Church

Newport Firefighters are learning the “in your face” experience of fighting a ferocious building fire off Highway 101 behind the Sacred Heart Catholic Church. They typically first practice individual room fire suppression. Then when they’ve gotten through those drills, they set fire to the whole building and practice what’s called “defensive tactics,” when a building is so consumed with flame there is no chance of saving it. So firefighters use water mainly to ensure the fire doesn’t reach out and ignite brush, trees or other nearby buildings.
