Scott's New Years Eve Tree Fire

Tilt your head to the left for this.
Scott has this thing about setting our Christmas trees on fire. This one we did at his older brother's house on New Years Eve. He poured a GALLON of gasoline on the thing.
I was so surprised when it went up. The flames were 20ft over us, and we were already standing a few feet above the base of the tree.
I started walking backward as soon as it lit up so I could keep the whole thing in the viewfinder. And a couple minutes later ash was falling like light snow back at the house.

That's pretty cool. Thanks for sharing. Yesterday we lit our tree on fire (in two sections because our tree was so big), and the second half engulfed in flames so much that the hot red ashes were hitting our storage wall. We were all afraid that it was going to catch on fire. Thankfully it was raining so the flames didn't get out of control. It would have been cool to get a picture or video, but we didn't have the camera on hand.
