A utility company in Xiangyang, China has reportedly developed a novel, if terrifying, solution to garbage building up on local power lines: fire breathing drones.

In a video that was recently published on Chinese social media site known as QQ.com, a properly equipped drone can take care of the problem in seconds and in spectacular fashion, instead of wasting technicians’ time and a disproportionate amount of resources by sending a crew with a cherry picker to clear power lines manually.

The drone can seemingly be controlled by two workers safely located on the sidewalk, avoiding possible electrocution by having to climb several feet into the air to remove the rubbish.
