MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Some homes in Brooklyn Park were damaged in a fire training exercise Monday afternoon.

The vinyl siding on two homes melted after the exercise went awry. Firefighters were burning down two other houses across the street in a training exercise when the heat spread.

The fire chief said the wind shifted, shooting heat at the neighbors’ homes.

He said the city will pay for the damage.
