The situation was potentially deadly: a blazing couch inside a home on Ten Mile in Kuna on Saturday sent black, caustic smoke into the air and flames grew hotter and hotter.

The event was a training exercise for firefighters from the Kuna Rural Fire District, who converged on the property near Kuna Middle School to practice making entry, finding and removing victims—a 165-pound dummy, in this case—all while bringing the blaze under control.
