Have you seen the latest cool thing to do on facebook?

Setting youself on fire.

Seriously, the latest victim is an 11 year old Clewiston kid. He doused himself with alcohol and set himself on fire after seeing what's called "The Fire challenge" on Youtube.

His mother heard him screaming and found him in the shower putting the flames out.

He was taken to the burn unit at Kendall Regional and was released from the Hospital Friday.

Hundreds of Fire Challenge videos have turned up on Facebook, and some have been removed.

Doctors at Kendall Regional say they've taken in 8 fire challenge victims over the last two days at its burn centers across the southeast.
