Fire was part of training
A fire at 501 Front St. Monday night was part of a training exercise conducted by the Hudson Fire Department. The fire and smoke, near the sewer plant, was seen by many people going to and coming from Minnesota.
Fire Chief Jim Frye said the city owned the house and the department used the vacant building for the training. The department was called back to the location early Tuesday morning when a tree near the house was reported to be smoldering.
