Merit McLeod, Fulton firefighter, looks on at a simulated fire at Westminster College on Tuesday.

Firefighters allowed the fire to continue to show about 100 Westminster students how fast a fire can spread. The purpose of the annual demonstration was to teach fire safety to students.

“(This is) to show them this is why there are rules in place,” Todd Gray, Fulton Fire Department engineer, said. “It's not to be mean. We're just putting them in a place to help them protect themselves.”
