GREEN BAY - Nine new recruits with the Green Bay Metro Fire Department participated in a training exercise Thursday.
The soon-to-be firefighters donned their full gear for a simulated search and rescue at a vacant Green Bay home.
Veteran firefighters say with the help of theatrical smoke, training in the home comes close to the real deal.
"It's nice for us to get in here and train on that, show the new recruits, the new firefighters because its what a lot of inner city houses are like and to get the layout of that," said Capt. Sean Linssen, Green Bay Metro Fire Department.
Their training will continue Friday on the city's east side. Next week it will be graduation time for the new recruits.
