Awesome. Mini-Fire Tornado Caught On Slow Motion Video

In nature, fire tornadoes occur when intense heat and turbulent wind conditions combine to form a whirling fiery vortex. These phenomenons are also referred to as fire devils, fire whirls, or even “firenados”.

Since the conditions must be just right for a fire tornado to form, they’re rarely documented or caught on video. That is why Dan and Gavin — better known on YouTube as The Slo Mo Guys — created their own mini-fire tornado using a dozen cheap fans and a small kerosene-fueled fire.

Like all of The Slow Mo Guys’ experiments, their video was filmed in high definition and features some awesome slow motion clips. Check out the video below to see a fire tornado in slow motion.
