Firefighting students fought flames at a home in Weston Saturday morning.
33 Northcentral Technical College students took part in a live fire exercise, by fighting a real fire in a real home.
Don't be alarmed if you saw flames, it was just a drill.
Educators said it gives students the opportunity to experience the dangers and use their skills in real time.
"The crackling, the ceilings dropping, the ventilation, you know a wide range of experience out of this," said NTC Fire and EMS Education Director, Doug Jennings.
Educators said students get to participate in live burns about four to six times a year.
The snowmobile trails opened in Vilas CountyFriday at 5 p.m.
