EUGENE, Ore. - It might be something you've only seen in the movies, but this weekend in Eugene you'll have a chance to see it with your own eyes!

The competition is heating up at the sixth annual Flame Off at the Eugene Glass School this weekend.  Roughly 40 talented artists from around the country are blowing and torching their way through this event. 

"Being that we're known for flame work, people naturally want to gather in Eugene.  So the Eugene Glass School is hosting this event to bring flame workers together so they can share ideas," says Samantha Pritchard with the Eugene Glass School.

The artists are competing in a number of categories with up to $20,000 in prizes.
