Wind whipped fire from a blaze at a plastics factory in Derbyshire, England, into a tornado-like whirl on August 6 as firefighters worked to extinguish the flames.
Fire crews from Derbyshire, Leicestershire, and Staffordshire responded to the fire at the Ravensbourn factory on Occupation Lane in Swadlincote. Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service said the fire involved thousands of stacked plastic pallets and “spread to a small site building and a number of fork-lift trucks.”
This footage was shared by Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service, who wrote that a ‘firenado’ is created “as cool air enters the top of the hot air causing a swirl similar to how a tornado is formed.”
