WATCH: Palm tree on fire causes havoc in Randburg

Normally, palm trees make people think about relaxing times, but these poor residents were a bundle of stress.


Recently, a video was shared by a resident of Block 14 in Randburg, and it has been doing the rounds on social media.

In the video, you see a man watching a palm tree catch fire in his neighbour’s yard, and to make things worse, the tree was directly under high-voltage powerlines.

The combination of the fire and the overhead lines caused plasma arc to start appearing, much to the shock of the residents.

The reaction the man had was justified, and he was not the only one to feel that way with some commenting: “This is something out of comic book, Fire Lightning.”
