Crews say with the right training, situations like this can be managed successfully. Tulsa Fire training officer, Mitch Pate, "And that hasn't been done before and not even a city for the size of Tulsa, but in bigger cities, that’s a pretty unique thing."

This is the third training session for both crews.
