Here's How Quickly Your 4th Of July Bonfire Could Go Badly Wrong

YIKES!

If you’re planning a bonfire to celebrate Independence Day, don’t do this.

It’s not clear when or where this was filmed, but the lesson is timeless... and it’s right in the title of the video: “Don’t put accelerants on bonfires.” 

The safest way to enjoy a summer blaze is by using a fire pit or fire ring and following precautions, instructions and common sense.
