HERMON - Hermon fire is warning the public to expect to see first responders participating in training this weekend.
Eight area departments, as well as the Maine Forest Service, Pan Am Railways, and Penobscot County Emergency Management Agency, all gearing up for an exercise to control wild fires.
The burn will span from creamery road in Hermon, all the way to five road in Carmel.
It's expected to start early Sunday and last most of the day.
The burn allows responders to get first hand experience on how to handle a large incident.
