September is Campus Fire Safety Month in South Dakota. The idea is to raise awareness about the potential for fire in college dorms, Greek housing, and off campus apartments.
The Rapid City Fire Department held a demonstration at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology to show students the danger of structure fire.
The department set up a steel trailer with side by side rooms. Both rooms were filled furniture and then set on fire.
Tim Behlings is an Assistant Chief at the Rapid City Fire Department.
