Practice makes perfect when you're fighting fires and saving lives.

Sixty firefighters from Kentucky are in Lexington for a 'Bread and Butter Boot Camp.'

Cincinnati Firefighter Scott Shaw says, "They're doing things like forcing doors and cutting ventilation holes, running some scenarios where they get to put all that together, and various other SCBA, self-contained breathing apparatus drills, and laddering, hose movement, just a bunch of basic firefighting skills. But they get to actually perform these things over and over again and a lot of places don't get the opportunity to do that throughout the year."

Instructors from 4 states are helping them hone some key firefighting skills.

Friday was day 1 of a 3 day program.
