Firefighting training shuts down Gainesville street

Eberhart Street in south Gainesville will be closed today for a Gainesville Fire Department exercise.

The street will be closed 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. April 30 between Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and High Street, according to a notice from the city of Gainesville.

“Every so often we’ll have people who like to donate a house for live fire training,” Gainesville Fire Department spokesman Keith Smith said, noting the training requires state permission.

Firefighters will work on interior fire operations, he said.
