LA is on fire. Or, at least the symbol of LA -- a giant palm tree -- is, in the video above.

This bizarre incident happened outside of Canter's Deli on Fairfax Avenue earlier this month, when some younguns in the rap group Odd Future threw a bottle rocket up into the palm tree, notes Gawker.

The rocket completely ignited the tree, which then rained fire on passerbys below. It also lit Damiano Mr. Pizza's cute awning on fire, although the owner told Gawker that the band said they'd pay for the repairs.

This vid pretty much sums out how it feels walking outside into LA's heat wave hell this week. As for Odd Future, also known as Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All (OFWGKTA), we hope they don't follow through any more of their lyrics:
