Fire district training to close Thelen Park on Wednesday

SPRING GROVE – Flames may be visible in the area surrounding Thelen Park on Wednesday evening as part of Spring Grove Fire Protection District training.

Thelen Park, at 8400 Winn Road, will be closed from 5 to 10 p.m. Wednesday for the training, which will be in the east end of the parking lot.

Firefighters will practice shutting off a propane gas tank valve and controlling the flames from a propane gas fire, Fire Chief Rich Tobiasz said.

The course is offered at no cost to the district by the University of Illinois.
