Which particular scene are you referring to? There are a few scenes at his house in the novel.

Bradbury compares the scene to a a circus or a carnival. This isn't a mere ordinary burning, it is made a spectacle. Bradbury draws on entertainment images like a big tent, ring man, and different circus acts. The absurdity of this burning is at the heart of the matter. Once the house is destroyed, the show is over.
