Some of Tulsa's future firefighters were put to the test Tuesday. A special training exercise gave the cadets their first chance to fight live fires.

Each blaze was set inside a special burn trailer. The trailer allows cadets to get hands-on training in a safe environment.

Tulsa Fire training officer Captain Dannie Caldwell: “back in the old days you got your training out at a house fire. Well, when you're protecting the citizens of Tulsa and Broken Arrow, the time to learn your skill is not out at an actual fire where people may actually be in danger.”

The Sapulpa Fire Department loaned the Tulsa Fire Department the burn trailer.
