Students explore simulated fire hazards for Fire Prevention Month

Two hundred elementary students are armed to fire-proof their homes after navigating the Columbus Fire Department's mobile fire safety house. Students at Gentian Elementary lined up outside the fire safety house Wednesday to see the insides of a fire truck and learn how to handle a home emergency. The small trailer, which imitates the inside of a home, allows Fire Department officials to travel to elementary and middle schools throughout Muscogee County.
