Firefighters from nine different departments spent 80 hours in Lexington training for a structural collapse.  Monday, they pretended a car blew up, and needed to be moved from the wreckage.

The firefighters say they train for the worst possible scenario.

"It gets the rescuers ready to respond for events such as West Liberty, 9/11, Oklahoma City bombing, terrorist events, things of that nature, urban search and rescue," said Captain Ryan Hogsten, Lexington Fire Department.

A grant from the Department of Homeland Security paid for the training.
