Shannon and Michael battle it out during firefighter challenge

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — A group of Winston-Salem firefighters recently returned home to the Triad after competing in the Scott Firefighter Combat Challenge in Las Vegas.

For nearly two decades, a team from the department has traveled to various combat challenges, even taking home several world titles over the years.

The combat challenge is a test of fitness and also a public show of just a few of the obstacles firefighters are put through daily.

FOX8’s Shannon Smith and Michael Spears were put to the test Friday, battling against the clock and each other.
