CLEVELAND,OH (CBS46/ CNN) -

Sometimes there is no limit to how far some people will go to set a world record.

On Saturday, a total of 20 people set themselves on fire in Cleveland in an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for most people performing full body burns.

A representative from Guinness was flown in to make the event official.

The event also raised money for the Cleveland Food Bank, and a charity to help impoverished families in South Africa.
