CHILLICOTHE, MO – A whirling “fire-devil” was spawned as a farmer burned off his field in Chillicothe, Missouri. Photographer Janae Copelin caught the phenomena with a snapshot early this week. The rare weather marvel is known as a “firenado.”

Firenadoes can be extremely dangerous, as they have the ability to throw burning embers miles away.
