Shocking footage of a fire tornado
Australia, September 14, 2012
Last week, filmmaker Chris Tangey of Chris Tangeywas scouting locations near Curtin Springs Station, about 80 km from Ularu, when faced with a fire very particular.
He had just finished his tour of the station where some workers had difficulty with a bulldozer. So he went to help them.
A small fire burned in nearby bushes, so he decided to start filming and caught the image of his life.
A tornado touched down at the scene of the fire, fanning into a raging fire tower.
The pillar of fire danced on the landscape for about 40 minutes, he said, as he and the station workers were paralyzed.
