FORT MYERS, Fla.  — The Fort Myers Fire Department has been fabricating a training structure to meet the specific needs of the department.

For the past month, different members have been helping with the project.

The CONEX containers are highly versatile and customizable, allowing FMFD to stack containers on top of one another to create any number of unique building designs.

Officials say they can simulate a real-life fire by using modified shipping containers meant to resemble a real burning building.
