SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — A “fire challenge,” where teens pour rubbing alcohol over their bodies and set themselves on fire, is gaining popularity.

Online videos show several people performing similar stunts before putting out the flames.

On Friday, a 16-year-old Southern California boy was taken to a hospital with first- and second-degree burns on his face, neck and hips but the injuries aren’t considered life-threatening.
