HOLLIDAYSBURG, Pa. (AP) - Police say two 13-year-old boys in Pennsylvania are facing disorderly conduct charges after one agreed to be set on fire so the other could film it and post it online.

Pennlive.com reports (https://bit.ly/1RJpBZ7) the stunt took place on New Year’s Day in Frankstown Township.

State police say one of the boys put lighter fluid on his clothes and the other used a blowtorch to ignite the clothing while he recorded it.

Police say the boy who was on fire had a difficult time extinguishing the flames but eventually managed to put them out, avoiding injury.

In a news release, state police say the public should know “such incidents, regardless of their intentions and the end result,” can result in charges.



The stunt was never posted online.
