CONCORD -- On Friday, July 18, part of the public parking garage at Salvio and Colfax streets in downtown will be closed for firefighter training.

Contra Costa County Fire will be using the garage's two uppermost sections to simulate fighting a fire in a hotel or apartment building with more than a dozen recruits. Motorists may park in the lower sections of the garage or at the second city garage two blocks away at Salvio and Galindo streets.
