A fire that broke out at a plastic tray factory in Derbyshire, England caused a spectacular fire tornado to form. Also known as a fire whirl or firenado, the rare spectacle could be seen from 25 miles away and took 12 hours to put out. No one was injured.
Via The Independent:
Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service, which helped the Derbyshire and Staffordshire services tackle the blaze, shared the video on Facebook, saying: “Whilst we were firefighting at Occupation Lane we witnessed a firenado or a fire whirl.
“It’s created as cool air enters the top of the hot air causing a swirl similar to how a tornado is formed.”
