MADISON, AL (WAFF) -

Madison firefighters went through intense training Tuesday.

Madison Fire and Rescue held fire training using the State of Alabama Fire College's Mobile Fire Simulation Trailer.

Officials said this gave them the opportunity to train in a controlled environment.

"It gives our guys the opportunity to go in see the fire, have to work their way through smoky conditions and actually perform the different tactics that will be required on the structure fire," said Capt. Russ Kenington.

Officials said the training is great practice for new firefighters and veterans alike.
