Firefighter Training Tower Was Tested

These Middlesboro Firefighters were trying to react as fast as they could, but luckily this was not a real fire.

They were testing out this new training tower Thursday.

The nearly two hundred thousand dollar facility allows firefighters to simulate every aspect of a real fire so they're experienced when facing the real thing.

The new tower could actually reduce homeowners insurance for people in Middlesboro by improving the city's fire suppression rating.
