3917 A Fire Tornado Filmed In Slow Motion Is Even More Awesome Than It Sounds
The Slow Mo Guys/YouTube

Believe it or not, fire tornados are a naturally occurring phenomenon. Furthermore, experts say they're not actually as uncommon as you'd think, just under-reported. 

Despite the name “fire tornado,” they actually have more in common with dust devils than tornados. Still, they’re pretty incredible to see – and even more so in super-slow-motion HD quality.
