LOS ANGELES (KTLA) — If you see smoke and flames coming from Los Angeles International Airport Tuesday morning, there’s no need to be alarmed.

The Los Angeles Fire Department is conducting a “live fire” training exercise at the airport from 4:30 to 6 a.m.

Historically, smoke from the training has been visible more than 30 miles from the airport.

Federal Aviation regulations require that all Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting (ARFF) personnel attend a live fire training drill at least once per year.

LAFD Airport Rescue Fire Fighters serving LAX and Van Nuys Airport use LAX’s $3.75 million training facility, located in the airport’s southwest corner.

    I just got paid $6784 working off my laptop this month. And if you think that's cool, my divorced friend has twin toddlers and made over $9k her first month. It feels so good making so much money when other people have to work for so much less. This is what I do, Rich45.ℂOM
