The training used a propane-fueled aircraft firefighting trainer supplied by Kellogg Community College of Battle Creek, Mich.
The school manages and operates a Federal Aviation Administration aircraft rescue and firefighting mobile trainer, which provides fire departments with the opportunity to prepare for real-life situations using their own apparatus.
For safety, trainers are able to control the intensity of the flames, which may be visible to drivers on Highway 101 and neighboring areas, according to the statement from the research center.
