Burning A Pineapple Tree

In the backyard of a wooden house, there is soft mud under my feet that I can feel through my sneakers as I walk towards a giant tree- which is in the center. A friendly man with dark hair walking besides me explains kindly that it's a pineapple tree.

A large group gathers around us and excitedly start talking amongst themselves about how they are planning to burn the tree. There is children there and they are getting excited.

We stand there as the men throw gasoline on the tree trunk and strike it with a torch. The flame burns very quickly and suddenly disappears in space with the tree. There isn't even burn marks leftover.
