Forget what people say about playing with fire; from fire eating to fire whip cracking, there's seemingly no limit to what can be done it! 

We're taking a look at the best of the best when it comes to fire records, and revisiting some of the most epic stunts we've seen throughout the years (all done by trained professionals, of course.)


Most alternate fire eating extinguishes in one minute (team of two) 

Laura Sutton aka Isobel Midnight (UK) and Noelia Hueso Muñoz aka Lady Noelia (Spain) achieved this record with 73 extinguishes at The Fire School, in London, UK, on 27 January 2019. 

Laura and Noelia have been performing together for many years, building the trust needed for two people to break a team fire eating record.
