Colorado's top fire official is warning parents to be aware of a new, dangerous fad that is spreading across the country. It’s called the "fire challenge."
"The 'challenge' encourages teens to douse themselves in an accelerant and then set fire to their bodies," said Paul Cooke, Director of the Colorado Division of Fire Prevention and Control.
Cooke said teens videotape the process and post it on social media to "challenge the bravery of others and encourage participation."
"I just poured alcohol on it, and lit it, and it just automatically went and burst," the teen told the TV station.
