Feeling the heat

Kenichi Umemura, a 35th Civil Engineer Squadron firefighter, monitors a fire during a controlled burn of at Misawa Air Base, Japan, March 15, 2017. The facility took approximately two hours to burn from the initial ignition to total destruction. It was still actively burning (smoldering) for an additional 12 to 18 hours after. The firefighters trained on their forcible entry techniques and learned more about fire behavior. This was the first time the 35th CES firefighters set fire to a building without the intent to put it out. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Melanie A. Hutto)
