IN 1911, ON THE 40TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE GREAT CHICAGO FIRE, THE FIRE MARSHAL’S ASSOCIATION OF

NORTH AMERICA (KNOWN TODAY AS THE INTERNATIONAL FIRE MARSHALS ASSOCIATION) DECIDED THAT THE ANNIVERSARY

OF THE GREAT CHICAGO FIRE SHOULD BE OBSERVED IN A WAY THAT WOULD KEEP THE PUBLIC INFORMED

ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF FIRE SAFETY.

 

IN 1920,  PRESIDENT WOODROW WILSON ISSUED THE FIRST NATIONAL FIRE PREVENTION DAY PROCLAMATION.

SINCE 1922, FIRE PREVENTION WEEK HAS BEEN OBSERVED ON THE SUNDAY THROUGH SATURDAY PERIOD, IN WHICH

OCTOBER 9th FALLS.

That’s me and I am indeed holding fire in my hand – no Photoshop trickery here.

I’m actually just holding butane filled soap bubbles that are burning.

Despite how it may look, it’s really fairly safe and if you first run your hand and wrist under

cold water (before lighting the propane bubbles) it doesn’t really hurt.

I stole the idea from one of my favorite YouTube guys – thanks Crazy Russian Hacker

Patrick used a Canon 1Dx with a 35mm f1.4 L series lens

2 Kinoflo Divas for lighting

 

 


 

Success isn’t a result of spontaneous combustion. You must set yourself on fire.
