HICKORY, N.C. — Two teams of three firefighters walked toward 30-foot-tall walls of billowing flames beside the small commuter plane, blasting water from their fire hoses. A third team waited for them to battle the flames back far enough to allow them to board the plane and get the passengers to safety.

The victims rescued from the plane were mannequins. The flames shot out of gas pipes laid out on the ground and simulated fuel spills.
