Texas makes the weird news files again.

Firefighters were called out recently to put out a fire in a grain elevator, and it turned out to be nothing more than a guy practicing his flaming baton juggling act in there.  Here's where it happened.

The call came in Sunday night in Fort Worth that there was a fire in a grain elevator, because at first glance it probably looked like one.  When firefighters got there they found a guy holding flaming batons, and he said he had been practicing juggling them.

He extinguished them.

Why in a grain elevator and not the back yard with a few buddies?  Who knows. He didn't give a reason why he picked the grain elevator.  Texans are crazy.  Thankfully there was no damage.

Maybe we'll see this guy in the circus someday. Or perhaps on a Youtube channel called "Fire Batons Gone Wrong."  Be careful out there!
