Jeepers, Look at This Insane Sulfur Fire
On July 7, the Worland Fire Department (WFD) in Washakie County, Wyoming was called to a recycling facility after reports of an “unknown type of fire,” as the department explained in a Facebook video of the conflagration that has since gone viral. Yeah I’d call that shit “unknown,” for sure.
What firefighters found was a sulfur mound that accidentally ignited from someone riding a goddamn motorcycle(!!!) over it, creating both mesmerizing, otherworldly flames and dangerous sulfur dioxide gas. On its Facebook post, the WFD explained that the mound was leftover from a plant north of the community that operated in the 1950s.
