The Roseville Fire Department will not be conducting training exercises downtown on Saturday, as had been planned.

The fire department had originally planned to set a series of small room fires to practice fire attack, search and rescue operations. According to the fire department, precautions are always taken to ensure the safety of the public and all surrounding structures.

The fire drills may be rescheduled.

"This type of training is essential to maintaining well-trained firefighters," according to a news release. "This exercise (allows) fire personnel a chance to enhance their skills in fire suppression while working in a safe, controlled environment."
