MICHIGAN -- A disturbing new trend among teens is spreading like wildfire on social media.

It's called 'The Fire Challenge' where teens spread rubbing alcohol all over their bodies before setting themselves on fire.

They typically do it in the shower in case the fire spreads so they can put it out. But doctors and emergency officials are warning that the challenge can be dangerous and even deadly.
