Virginia Beach, Va. (WTKR) - It is a unique perspective on the dangerous environment firefighters encounter daily: a burning building, filled with smoke.

On Friday, firefighters from Virginia Beach, Norfolk and Chesapeake gathered to train together at the Virginia Beach Fire Training Center as part of the Tri-City Fire Department Automatic Aid initiative.
