If you have ever wanted to set something on fire, Fortnite seems to be all for giving you the opportunity to do so safely. To complete this challenge you need to destroy 10 structures with fire, but how?

First of all, if you actually manage to complete this challenge, then you get 24,000 XP. You know, if becoming a virtual arsonist was not enough motivation.

To actually be able to set any structure you see on fire, you can use either the Flame Bow, an Exploding Gas Can, or Fireflies. The first two are pretty self-explanatory (aim at a wooden building and fire) but Fireflies might be a little trickier to find.

Fortunately, you can find lots of Fireflies around the Weeping Woods area. They're a little more visible at night if you are having trouble locating them. Once you have collected some Fireflies, head towards the nearest structure and toss the Fireflies from your inventory at the wooden part of the structure.
