The Sankthans (Midsummer) bonfire on Slinningsodden in Ålesund over the weekend was measured at 47.4 metres, setting a new world record. 
 
The world's tallest Midsummer bonfire was lit on Saturday night, with the fire department and emergency services standing by as observers watched the record fire from land and in small boats. 
 
The world record was confirmed by the Møre and Romsdal Police. According to Sunnmørsposten, the Slinningsodden bonfire was measured by laser at 47.4 metres. It was made up of pallets and was built without any machinery at all.
