Combustion!

Combustion is one of the first chemical reactions controlled by early humans. A mastered flame literally sparked the inspiration that would lead to heat, cooking, electricity, trains, automobiles and the very rockets that lifted us high enough to look back in deferential amazement at the life sustaining home planet we call Earth. Fire breather Andrew Lindsay can be seen here performing at the WaterFire Festival in downtown Providence, RI. Andrew is a regular performer at WaterFire which continues to be a favorite attraction for citizens and tourists from around the world.
