A dramatic video has emerged of a hot air balloon catching fire at an event in France. The footage, captured at the 40th French Championship of Air Balloons, in Sablé-sur-Sarthe on Saturday shows one of the air balloons catching fire shortly after taking off. According to local reports, the fire started when the basket hit a lamppost and the resulting impact knocked the flame into the balloon. The director of the event reported that, miraculously, nobody was seriously injured in the accident.
