‘Firenado’ captured by Idaho firefighter

BOISE, Idaho (NBC News) – There are many people who experience a tornado in their lifetime, but not too many of them witness a firenado sprouting in the air.

This video shot Saturday by firefighter Craig Fluer shows a firenado engulfing the air in Boise, Idaho.

Fluer was busy battling a so-called soda fire at the time he captured this scene.

He says the Firenado was shooting flames 100 feet in the air, while dropping hot dirt and ash on firefighters’ helmets.

Saturday night was the first time the Idaho firefighter laid eyes on something like this.
