New recruits train in live fires


New Albany Firefighters put their skills to the test in live fire scenarios as the department works to fill upcoming vacancies.

The new firefighter recruits will step into new roles as others enter retirement.

Crews worked at the department's fire training center, battling live fires with sustained temperatures of more than 700 degrees.

Friday's training marks six weeks of preparation for the new firefighters.
