WAUSAU, WI (WSAU) - Expect some smoke on Wausau's east side this week as the fire department does some live burn training.

Fire crews and staff from EFI Global will be doing a set of training burns to cause partial damage to a pair of buildings on the 1300 block of North 2nd Street. Those burns will be left in place for investigators to come and train on next week.

There might be some smoke coming from the buildings over the next several days, so neighbors are reminded to keep their windows shut and not to hang any laundry.

Traffic on North Second Street from Short to Dekalb will be closed from 7am to 4pm Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday for the training.
