SAN MARCOS (CBS 8) - A fire at an apartment complex in San Marcos Wednesday was all part of a training drill for firefighters.
The live-fire drill started around 11 a.m. at the abandoned complex on Chinabarry Lane.
The exercise sent columns of smoke into the sky that could be seen for miles.
As part of the training, instructors started fires inside the complex. Crews then determine the best way to attack.
