Light it up with fire on Hue's Truong Tien Bridge

The 115-year-old Truong Tien Bridge, which spans over the renowned Huong (Perfume) River in Hue City, was lit up by fire in an installation by French artist Carabosse on Friday evening. The fire has fascinated local people, who are familiar with the bridge under illumination by led lighting at night. The art installation is part of the ongoing Hue Festival 2014 and will repeat in Sunday night for the closing ceremony of the festival. Reporter Phuoc Buu captures the moments of lights.

The bridge is lit up by fire from 4,000 buckets that are hung on its steel frame.
The ‘fire' bridge draws crowds of local people and tourists.
