'Firenado' sucks up hose during British Columbia wildfire

Bennie Garza | 21 September, 2018, 10:37

"Holy f.", Schidlowsky says as the line twists in the sky. "It threw burning logs across our guard for 45 minutes and pulled our hose 100 plus ft.in the air before melting it", she wrote in the post.

Described on her social media account as a "wildland firefighter, paramedic and motorcyclist" Schidlowsky was part of the Vanderhoof area team trying to put an end to what's believed to be the worst wildfire season British Columbia has ever experienced. "That's definitely a first", Schidlowsky writes in the post.

A fire hose is pulled into the fire whirl during one of the raging fires in the Canadian province of British Columbia. The way they come about is a mix between high heat as well as rapid winds that grow larger and larger once it starts sucking in debris. They occur when a gust of extremely hot air blows through the fire at a certain angle, producing a spinning momentum, which then sucks up embers and debris.

Skrepnek said it's not actually a tornado, but more similar to a water spout or dust devil that lasts a few seconds. A dramatic video was captured on camera by a firefighter and it has left people around the globe gaping.

The video was captured August 19 near Vanderhoof while crews were fighting the Chutanli Lake fire.
