POPLAR BLUFF, MO (KFVS) - Three people are about to enter a burning trailer, armed with nothing but a high-pressure water hose. Smoke hisses out from around a closed door, the boiling heat radiating off the metal walls hard enough to be felt 20 feet away. Even being near it makes most people nervous--but the man who organized the whole event is having the time of his life.
Jack Armor is a stocky, white-bearded man who looks like someone’s grandfather. He’s also a 30-year veteran of the Poplar Bluff fire department and currently works for Three Rivers College coordinating training events for firefighters across the state. For Armor, this training event, which pulls firefighters from across the area, doesn't even qualify as exciting anymore.
