A controlled burn on a nearly century-old elementary school building in Exira, Iowa scheduled for Sunday morning has been postponed due to strong winds.
Officials have rescheduled it for June 1st.
About 100 firefighters from about a dozen departments in the region were expected to participate in the burn as part of training. The Exira Elk Horn-Kimballton Community School District said it will save up to $60,000 in demolition costs by doing the burn.
The large brick building near the center of town was closed in 2011. It was originally scheduled to be burned down at the end of April, but poor weather conditions canceled it.
Exira is about 60 miles west of Des Moines.
