WTVJ looked into the death of a fire fighter recruit and found that serious safety warnings about fire fighter training were ignored in the months before his fatal "live burn" exercise. A Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Department captain, and lead instructor, told WTVJ that he notified his superiors about problems with the training tactics that could lead to death. His warnings were ignored.
