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."
