Fracking is a controversial method to extract gas and oil from rock. The process involves drilling deep into the earth and then using high pressure water, sand and chemicals to fracture the earth and release natural gas.  Apparently, one of the side effects of fracking is the ability to set water on fire.  More accurately, it seems to have released methane deposits from underground into the river.

A tornado of fire chased firefighters in St. Albert, Canada into a river to escape. When a campfire in the area got out of control, the wind conditions and dry grass led to this terrifying hellstorm. Apparently, it's technically called a "fire whirl" as a helpful meteorologist on Twitter pointed out before providing this GIF explaining how it was created:

A Florida high school thought it would be a good idea to bring in some kind of basketball/fire breathing stunt to perform at a pep rally. 

The fire breather, Ricky Charles, is not a novice but he managed to engulf himself in flames while fire breathing on a bouncy castle. 

He's reportedly dealing with some burns on his face but he's going to be fine.  You can watch this video for a play by play of what happened and a picture/description of his injury.

Preschooler Cloe Woods learned what to do in case of fire in a recent fieldtrip. Unfortunately, she had the chance to use that knowledge when her house caught on fire with her and her grandmother in it.  

She made sure her blind grandma had a hold of her shoulder so that she could quickly lead her out of the house. When everyone was safe, including the family dog, she ran to the neighbors and asked them to call 911.

A wildfire broke out in Waroona, in south western Australia, leaving behind damaged property and lives.   The adorable photo has attracted a lot of attention.  The veterinary clinic that is taking care of him mentioned that the burns on his tail aren't affecting his balance so they are hopeful. They also released additional information after a massive response. 

I have had a lot of messages about this little man - yes he is a boy. Yes he has some bad burns but has taken this long to catch. We will definitely keep you updated on his progress! Nurse Frosina x


This little guy got some terrible burns but he wasn't the only one.



Pets, farm animals and wild animals alike have been affected by this tragedy. 



According to their Facebook page, all animals at this clinic affected by the fires are being treated for free.

Michelle Dobyne was having a quiet morning making breakfast when she discovered her apartment building was on fire. Speaking to the local news, she described her reaction:

"I got my three kids and we bounced out. Nuh uh, we ain't gon be in no fire, not today!"



Dobyne and the rest of the residents are okay, but will be without power for at least the rest of the week, since the building's electrical panels were destroyed in the fire. If any of the other residents are like Dobyne though, they'll surely be in good spirits.

You're not doing it right dude. Kudos to Buffalo Bills fans though for helping this beer-soaked idiot out.

Buffalo Bills fans this year have been ranked as the NFL's drunkest fans; and it seems like they're hellbent on one-upping the prior game's hysterical, purely irrational antics.

From this gnarly RKO awhile ago:

To this absolute depraved act of moonsaulting debauchery:

Stay safe out there Buffalo Bills fans!
