Firefighters Get Helping Hand from Wapato High School Students

WAPATO, Wa -  High school students from Wapato are helping fire departments from three counties here in Central Washington prepare for a fire investigation class.

The students are building ten wooden cubicles that will be used to train ten firefighters to become certified fire investigators.

Once all the cubicles have been built, they'll be burned to the ground.

Firefighters will then conduct a mach investigation -- trying to figure out how the fire started, talking to witnesses and filling out a report.
