The previous record was held by an Australian and was 23 feet 7 inches.  The new record was set today in a warehouse in Las Vegas by fire breather and America’s Got Talent 2010 contestant Antonio Restivo who blew a 26 foot and 5 inch flame. Antonio is the first American to hold this record. His proud mother, Eileen Restivo, was on hand to watch, along with Antonio’s friends, family and colleagues.

Antonio Restivo was born in Brooklyn, New York. When Antonio Restivo was just 8 years old, he burned down his best friend’s backyard. Of course, Antonio Restivo knew even then, that the element of fire would change his life forever. For the past 13 years, Antonio Restivo has been traveling across the United States teaching students of all ages how to safely spin, work and dance with fire. Teaching about fire wasn’t always a glamorous or lucrative living and some nights were even spent sleeping in his van, but Antonio Restivo’s passion more than made up for any lack of money coming in. Antonio Restivo now spends most of his nights thinking and working on new fire props and hanging out with his dog Bella. Antonio Restivo truly feels that “America’s Got Talent” is the most exciting opportunity he’s had in his life and looks forward to showing America what he can do. — Wikipedia
