Smoke may be visible during a firefighter training schedule at the South Gondola Parking Structure in Breckenridge Sept. 19-21, according to a news release. Please do not call 911.

Personnel from Red, White & Blue Fire Protection District and Summit Fire & EMS will be training at the parking structure at 80 North Park Ave. each day from 9 a.m to 4:30 p.m., the release states.

The focus of the training is on parking structures, which are a low-frequency, high-risk hazard for firefighters, according to Red, White & Blue.
