If once you fail, burn, burn again

News & Star
A record breaking Carlisle [UK] firewalker who ended up in hospital after his world-beating show in January is hot-footing it back to Belah School tonight for a fiery fundraising event.

Scott Bell will mentor 10 parents as they brave the red-hot coals to raise cash for the school.

Scott broke the world record for firewalking in January at another fundraiser for the school, when he walked 250ft over temperatures of up to 1,300 degrees Fahrenheit. But the dampers were put on his achievement when he ended up in hospital for 10 days – suffering from burned feet.

Now fully recovered, Scott insists the burns were a one-off and he is mentally and physically prepared to face the fire again.
