Firenado in Canada Pulls Fire Hose Into Air

A video posted to Instagram shows an unreal scene of a fire tornado pulling the hose of a Canadian wildfire crew high into the air. 

Three firefighters are seen struggling to control the hose as it is sucked toward the flames, while a spinning vortex of fire appears feet away.

Firefighter Mary Schidlowsky shot and posted the video of the fire tornado, which formed southwest of Vanderhoof, British Columbia, near Chutanli Lake, and was almost 200 feet high.

Bc Wildfire Information Officer Forrest Tower said the tornado was caused by the heat rising off the wildfire in combination with extremely high winds.
