Fire Festival: A Pyromaniac’s Wet Dream

BERKELEY, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Pyromaniacs will be all hot and bothered today (Jul. 15).

That’s when The Crucible – an art education facility that teaches budding Picassos how to use fire to make art – hosts the 9th Annual Fire Arts Festival.

The event blazes onto 10 acres of land below the freeways of Berkeley, California, where artists display large scale installations and sculptures made of fire and light.

Spokesperson Jan Schlesinger calls the flaming festivities a pyromaniac’s wet dream and says, “We’re all pyros here! We make no bones about it. This isn’t the place for someone who’s totally repulsed by fire.”

Though the crazy art pieces will blow pyromaniacs away, no one will literally be blown away during the on-site courses on using fire safely for artistic purposes.

Schlesinger assures that playing with fire won’t get anyone burned since crews will be on-hand and proper safety precautions will be taken to ensure no one feels the heat.
