It looked like a fire at the airport. You might have seen it driving home. But it was just practice.

Fire fighting crews at Evansville Regional were doing their required yearly training near U.S. 41 and St. George Rd. They were practicing for in case an aircraft crashes and catches fire.

"We're glad that we have not any incidents in quite a few years here," said Operations Manager Nate Hahn. "But they're constant reminders. San Francisco, their crash proves those things do happen. They're few and far between. But it's important when everyone is prepared when something like that ever happens."

The burn exercise continues at Evansville Regional through Wednesday.
