District Will Burn Elementary School

EXIRA, Iowa (KCCI-TV)  Officials in Exira plan to burn down the western Iowa city's old elementary school.

The Atlantic News Telegraph reports burning the school would save the district up to $60,000 in demolition costs, even including the cost to haul away the charred remains.

It also will give area fire departments a rare chance to train on a multi-floor building.

Superintendent Dean Schnoes notes the three-story building has seven different floor levels.

The fire is planned for April 27.

Officials will use wood pallets to start the fire and are seeking pallet donations.
