Imagine having a deal with a massive fire before you graduate.

As scary as that sounds, this was part of the lesson for these fire cadet students.

They had to pass this final exam before graduating from Del Mar College.

The cadets took everything they’ve learned to help them put it out.

Leo Garza, one of the cadets, says,"(its) a lot of training, a lot of studying, a lot of stuff you got to review, a lot of fire science."

Gabriel Cantu, a cadet with the Del Mar Regional Fire Academy, said,"(you) just got to be safe, communication, and be with your team. Work and never give up. keep on going until the fire’s out."

In all 16 cadets took part in Tuesday afternoon’s fire test.
