While using several layers of Nomex clothing and fire gel weighing a combined 50 kg, Joe -- known locally as Seppe -- enthralled the audience of around 1,500 people as he ran around the town square, followed closely by a safety team of local fire fighters.
Watched by his wife and children and hundreds of supporters, the attempt smashed the previous record of 162m, with Joe reaching a distance of 196.57m.
Joe will be making further record attempts at the nearby Teichalm in June.
