People willingly set themselves on fire

First, the Browns left Cleveland. Then, LeBron left the city. Things have gotten so bad in Cleveland that people are setting themselves on fire.

Twenty-one people were set on fire on Saturday during a Guinness World Record attempt. The group broke the record for most people performing "full-body burns."

The previous record was set in 2009 when 17 people were engulfed in flames.

The volunteers wore several layers of special gel-soaked clothing for protection.
