Duluth firefighters put out a blaze in Duluth on Wednesday; however, it was in a controlled environment.

The Duluth Fire Department conducted fire training exercises for their employees at an abandoned house in the Miller Hill area. In the course of three days, 96 firefighters will work on skills like finding where the seed of the fire is, deploying their crew, and ultimately, extinguishing the fire.

It's been five years since this specific type of training took place, but the Duluth Fire Department Training Chief Mike Consie said it's still important to practice.

"This is the things that we do that are high risk for us," said Consie. "So, getting our crews in here for training in more of a controlled environment where we can work through the problems that we maybe faced is absolutely critical for us."

Consie said this something the firefighters look forward to as this is where they get to practice their skills.
