SLIDESHOW: Rochester firefighters hold training

ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- Rochester firefighters held a training session Tuesday on a burning home in northwest Rochester.

About a dozen Rochester firefighters met at an abandoned house about a mile west of Highway 63 on 75th Street NW at 10 a.m. to do a few training exercises.

At about 10:45 a.m., the firefighters set the building ablaze.

Flames erupted from the front door of the house and the building was up in smoke within minutes.

The firefighters then rushed in the house and were completely surrounded by the smoke coming from it.
