Australian Fire Tornados

This is pretty wild; wind whipping wildfires into short-lived tornado-like smoke funnels. They call them “fire tornados” or “fire whirls“, which is probably more accurate, since they probably don’t reach anywhere near the wind velocity of the real thing. Still, I’d hate to be caught in the path of something like that.
