Chattanooga firefighters finish training with live fire exercise
The Chattanooga Fire Department set fire to a donated house on Shallowford Road to end a week of live fire exercises for new recruits on Friday. The exercise allowed recruits to see how quickly fire can overtake a house in a real-world situation. If the recruits complete the rest of their training they will graduate in June.
