As the temperatures climb in San Diego County the fire potential becomes even more of a threat. Saturday, citizens had the opportunity to feel what's it like to face that danger. A one-day fire ground operations orientation was held for civilians, including elected officials and members of the media. Participants dressed out in fire gear, donned a breathing apparatus and walked into a controlled fire scene at the Heartland Fire Training Facility.
