MIDDLETON (WKOW) -- Town of Madison firefighters did some training at a burning building in Middleton Friday.
It was part of the Dane County arson responsive initiative. They simulated a situation when a fire starts at counter-top level instead of the flood, and focused on how fast it would grow.
Organizers say learning about how fires begin helps them with arson investigations.
"It's that police-fire component that is extremely valuable for us to solve how fires originate and the circumstances behind those," Brad Olson with the Dane County Response Initiative says.
Where a fire originates plays a big role in how fast the fire grows, the amount of damage it causes and how much smoke is produced.
