Watch This Tornado Of Fire Swirl Around Northern Australia

For 40 minutes, a bush fire burning across the plains surrounding Curtin Springs Station swirled in a terrifying and breathtaking column of pure flame. The tornado of fire was caught on camera by Chris Tangey, of Alice Springs Film and Television, who was scouting locations in the area when the firey twister erupted before his eyes!

Because that’s where I want to be when a fire tornado starts: anywhere near it. RUN, MAN!
