I've never seen and heard of this kind of scene entitled by the CNN as "Australian fire devil stretched into sky." Fire devil! At first, I thought the word "fire devil" must be the term coined by a staff writer to describe this fierce natural phenomenon. I impressed by how well it was made. But soon I learned this word already existed in English. Yet even so, it's true that this is an infrequent occurrence as I expected.
According to the article, an Australian happened to come across this event in the outback and captured it. Started shooting a video first, the whirlwind with fire was quite small. So he thought it would fade out in a few minutes. However, it unexpectedly began growing up as sucking up fire. He said the twister caused by flames amazingly reached more than 30 meters and swirled there without moving anywhere for 40 minutes.
This is quoted from the remark he said in the end:“It sounded like a jet fighter going by, yet there wasn’t a breath of wind where we were."
