The Erie Regional Airport Authority is getting hands on in it's fire training.

The airport's Fire Department started its annual hot drill this morning.

Firefighters battled a simulated fire on an air craft and also a simulated runway fuel fire.

The fires were started with propane and were cooler than a typical fuel-based fire.

Officials tell us this training is dangerous, nonetheless.
