- A sulfur fire burning in the shape of a bowl in Worland, Wyoming has gone viral after the fire department posted some video of the mesmerizing sight.

The Worland Fire Protection District said firefighters were dispatched on Friday to a recycling plant were a sulfur mound had been ignited. 

"Despite the beautiful flames, sulfur creates a hazardous gas called sulfur dioxide," the fire district wrote on Facebook.
