A few inexperienced Frazee and Wolf Lake firefighters got a taste of what's it like to be on the scene of a major blaze at a drill Wednesday night.


The large fire that could be seen from miles away was a "level one" training that was eventually put out around 10:30 p.m.

Many area residents driving by on Highway 87, about 13 miles east of Frazee, slowed down to watch the simulation.
