The Fire Tornado
Video footage was captured of a massive fire tornado, also know as a fire devil, whirling across Curtin Springs, Australia.
Although this phenomenon is rarely captured it can easily occur under hot and windy conditions. Blazing eddies of flaming wind can form and tighten into a tornado. A fire tornado has a core of fire fed by fresh combustible oxygen that is continually rotated in by the strong winds. Most fire devils are 2 feet wide and 50 to 100 feet tall but have reached widths of 10 feet and heights of 1000 feet. Check out some of the footage of these fired up whirl winds.
