The Crucible in Oakland, California hosts a spectacular event each summer called the Fire Arts Festival. The Flamethrower Shooting Gallery is one of the installations. The Flamethrower Shooting Gallery operates by a high pressure line fed by nitrogen that blasts 87 octane gasoline or methanol in a straight line for about 30 feet. Targets are set up for attendees to shoot at. This video documents the set up in West Oakland.

July 13, 2009

The Crucible is an industrial arts learning and production facility in West Oakland, California. The Crucible provides classes in glass blowing, welding and fabricating, jewelry, bicycle repair and many aspects of the industrial arts. The Crucible provides wonderful community support for the youth residing in the surrounding community.

Every summer, The Crucible produces an event called the Fire Arts Festival near its facility. The Flamethrower Shooting Gallery, of which I am a Safety Range Officer, will participate once again.
