People say that firefighters have one of the most dangerous and hard jobs in the world. Apart from saving lives, they are also expected to fight off the mighty power of the blazing fire without causing more damage to the surrounding area. And of course, they are also expected to keep themselves safe in life-threatening situations.
So it’s understandable that firefighters in training caused an accident, which ended up in the news. According to reports, a group of firefighters in training practiced with a mock-up of a burning aircraft, which was placed on a highway in North Bend, Washington. During the training, the group sprayed the burning plane with jet fuel, thinking it was water. UPI beliefs the accident was caused by a malfunction in an oil-water separator, which is used in order to recycle water for training, which is filtered from jet fuel. The malfunction probably caused the water’s contamination.
Fortunately, only two firefighters suffered some minor injuries.
