GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) – Firefighters in one Eastern Carolina city trained for something they hope will never happen — a fire in a shopping mall.
Monday morning, Greenville Fire/Rescue held a hands-on joint simulated fire inside the Greenville Mall.
It took place before the mall opened.
The fire department and the mall used the exercise to evaluate capabilities in case of a fire. Those included how the mall staff initially responded to a fire, as well as the coordinated fire attack by the fire department.
