UPPER SADDLE RIVER, N.J. -- A vacant house in Upper Saddle River provide members of the Upper Saddle River Fire Department some valuable practice.

The April 20 practice included practicing search and hose techniques, the department noted in a Facebook post. Junior firefighters also learned about exterior duties, including using ladders and changing SCBA -- or "self-contained breathing apparatus" -- cylinders.
