Incredible footage has just been made available to us humble internet-goers of a fire tornado in Australia from 2012. A fire tornado is exactly what it sounds like.

This footage of a forest fire combining with a tornado was taken by photographer Chris Tangey. The energy of the fire gives the vortex more power, as air shoots up from the center. The fire tornado was estimated at 110 feet. Tangey said that he has "never seen anything so big move so fast, in my life."
