The Awesome Majestic Sight Of A Firenado!

When a tornado meets a forest fire we get the awesomely sounding and possibly destructive Firenado!

Ok, so a Firenado is just below a Sharknado in the awesome charts  but a Firenado, as you can see above, is a lot less ficticious.

The highly-likely, divinely orchestrated incident occurred on Sunday the 14th of August in Cornelius, Oregon. The Cornelius Fire Department captured footage of the Firenado being created as a tornado slowly approached a small forest fire, which the fire fighters where tackling at the time.

The air currents which hovered over the fire created a larger fire due to the extra oxygen being pumped into the fire. The fire spiralled up through the tornado creating the Firenado.

No one was injured during the incident.
