An inferno in Canada even incinerated a fire hose deployed to fight it.
Video posted on Instagram on August 19 showed three firefighters trying to pull back the hose, which was sucked into a fire whirl.
Instagram user M.C. Schidlowsky said "fire tornado destroyed our line", and added the tornado was roughly 200-foot tall.
According to local media, the fire tornado was caused by a mix of the heat rising off the wildfire and high winds.
British Columbia declared a state of emergency in August due to the wildfires.
