I've seen incredible things before, but nothing like this. A group of men went into a trance and performed what appeared to be miracles. This man lay down on a roaring fire for more than a minute and emerged from the flames unscathed. Another placed a burning piece of wood in his mouth and kept it there long enough for me to photograph him. I have no explanation.
