FORT WORTH, Texas, Jan. 5 (UPI) -- Texas firefighters rushing to the scene of a reported fire in a grain elevator arrived to find a man practicing his juggling with flaming batons.

Fort Worth fire department spokesman Lt. Kyle Falkner said the Engine 10 crew responded about 7 p.m. Sunday to a report of a fire in a grain elevator on the eighth floor of the building.


"When they got up there they saw a guy juggling flaming batons in the grain elevator," Falkner told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

He said the man was unable to give firefighters a reason for his being in the elevator.

"They put his torches out," he said.

Falkner said there was no damage to the elevator or the building.
