Firefighters capture video of ‘firenado’
Peardale Chicago Park Fire Department

Firefighters battling the Carr Fire in Northern California captured video of a “firenado,” also known as a fire tornado, swirling flames across a road.

The flames came very close to a fire engine from the Peardale Chicago Park Fire Department that was driving along the highway.

The department captured video of the phenomenon and shared it on Instagram.
