Warning: video contains profanity

According to poster and firefighter Mary Schidlowsky, the scene unfolded near Vanderhoof, B.C., during the recent wildfire season.

“Fire tornado destroyed our line. It threw burning logs across our guard for 45 minutes and pulled our hose 100 plus ft. in the air before melting it,” she wrote. “That’s definitely a first.”

Schidlowsky also posted that the fire tornado grew to more than 200 feet (60 metres) tall.
