Korea: celebratory fire kills four

Firegeezer has an incredible story with great photographs of a ritual celebration in Korea that involves setting pampas grass on fire in front of a crowd of spectators to see how fast it will spread as people wish for good luck and a good harvest. They got bad luck this year as the fire spread VERY quickly--think, stampede, trampling, burns, and people jumping off a cliff. Check out the details at Firegeezer.
