Too Hot to Handle: This Seattle group plays with fire

On a sunny Seattle day, you can find just about anything at Gas Works Park; tight-rope walking, juggling and even a boxing class. But there's one group that never fails to attract a crowd.

They call themselves Spinurn - and it's addictive to watch them in action!

"We get a lot of people who stop from 5 to 15 minutes to hang out and watch us," said founder Kopernous Sparks. "We call it Spinurn because it's spin and burn with out the B."

"It's calming, but also who doesn't like fire?," said member Desert Black. "Who doesn't like to burn stuff and have fun and its primal!""

But never fear, safety is the group's #1 priority.

"Everyone is taken through a safety certification course," said Black. "There are barriers to keep the public out and designated fuel areas."

But of course, there's one question they get all the time:

Do you ever get burned?

"Honestly my answer is - I get more burns from my oven," said Aetheria Lambert.
