Firefighters burned down two homes in Blue Springs as the city looks to clean up the community and give volunteer firefighters much needed training.

Councilman Gene Reedy Jr. told the Beatrice Daily Sun the fires Saturday helped the small southeast Nebraska community remove two longtime eyesores.

Reedy owns the property where one home was burned. He says it was up to 100 years old and had been unoccupied for decades. The two houses bring the total number of such controlled fires to three this year.

Blue Springs Volunteer Fire Department Chief Brad Robinson says the fires provide good practice for the department's 21 volunteers.
