Emergency workers put to the test during LVIA disaster drill

There were sirens, fire and dozens of first responders on scene at the Lehigh Valley International Airport Saturday. But don't worry, it was only a test.

More then 150 people took part in the four-hour disaster drill. Crews had to respond to a fire that broke out on a packed plane.

Organizers say the exercise tested the airport's emergency response and provided hands-on training for the emergency personnel.
