The fire involved approximately 10,000 sq metres of stacked plastic pallets at the factory, which makes plastic crates for supermarkets.

United Kingdom firefighters witness a rare fire tornado as they tackle a fire at a plastics factory in the village of Woodville, Derbyshire.

Firefighters had been tackling the blaze since about 01:20 BST at Ravensbourn Plastics Ltd on Occupation Lane, in Albert Village, Swadlincote.

A video recorded by firefighters and posted to Twitter by Leicestershire's fire department captured the event, showing a slim streak of fire reaching into the sky amid a visible whirlwind storm that resembled a twister.

Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service, who were assisting local crews in Derbyshire, shared the stunning video on Facebook.


The "firenado" swept across the fields near the factory, as the fire sent dark plumes of smoke into the sky on Monday.

East Midlands Ambulance Service attended but no injuries were reported.

Derbyshire Police have said an investigation into the cause of the fire is under way and are appealing for anyone with information to come forward.

All of that sounds like a pretty reasonable explanation, but once you see the video, a much more straightforward explanation is that we have somehow accidentally opened a gate into Hell and Lucifer himself is about to emerge and wreak havoc.
