CHAMPAIGN -- After days of intense training, more than 300 teenagers left the UI and headed home. The Fire Service Institute hosted its Explorer Cadet Fire School. Cadets learned the basics of firefighting and finished up the last of it.

For many, it's their first time with this type of hands-on training but they enjoyed the program. Cadets came from Michigan, Iowa and Wisconsin.
