LAS VEGAS, June 16 (UPI) -- A circus performer known as "The Human Fuse" launched himself from a giant crossbow on the Las Vegas Strip after setting himself ablaze.

Brian Miser, a performer with the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey's "Fully Charged" show, traveled 110 feet through the air while on fire and landed on an air bag, The Las Vegas Sun reported Thursday.

"Las Vegas has a huge circus tradition, and we're really excited to have the opportunity to come back to the Thomas & Mack Center, and the chance to pull a stunt this big on the Las Vegas Strip is just too good to pass up," ringmaster Brian Crawford Scott said.
