    Augusta firefighter/paramedic Nick Santy smashes through a wall with an ax Wednesday in front of the basement meeting room into the entryway of Lithgow Public Library in Augusta, which is being renovated. Firefighters have been training on wall breaching and forcing doors open in the addition that is scheduled for demolition as part the library expansion plans. The building offered other unusual practice opportunities such as cutting ventilation holes in the metal roof. “They said we could have at it. Anything we break, they won’t have to,” joked Battalion Chief Jason Farris, speaking about the section of the building that will be demolished next week.
