A farmhouse in southern in Johnson County was burned down Thursday as part of training for local firefighters, and a local charity will decide how to use the property.

The property on County Road 700W northwest of Trafalgar had been donated to Habitat for Humanity, and the house needed to be demolished, said Lee Ann Wilbur, Habitat’s Johnson County executive director.

The organization worked with Bargersville Fire Department to do a controlled burn, which would save Habitat the cost of tearing the house down and hauling material away, Wilbur said. Habitat for Humanity builds homes for low-income families.
