CHILLICOTHE, Mo. — Worldwide attention has come to a woman who was driving through Chillicothe, Mo. and snapped a picture of an awesome and fascinating fire twister.

“Had such a wonderful weekend, but this had to be the coolest/scariest thing I’ve ever seen,” she wrote. “A farmer burning off his field and as we stopped so I could take a picture the wind whipped up this fire twister. #nofilter #firestorm #firetwister”.

Fire-nados resemble tornados, as the flames swirl into the sky. They occur when there are strong winds accompanied by intense heat.
