This amazing video is some of the rarest fire tornado video ever shot! This fire tornado was spinning away on this lake for over an hour! The fuel for this fire is “Bourbon” that was leaking from the Jim Beam warehouse in Kentucky.
After the lightning struck the warehouse, some 800,000 gallons of bourbon spilled into the neighboring pond, resulting in the fiery funnel of death and/or metal. It brings literal meaning to Metallica’s 1983 anthem “Jump in the Fire.”
Thankfully, no one humans were harmed, and only “many fish” were killed. If the Firenado had moved out of the water, there’s no telling how much damage it could have done or what fire-resistant, man-eating animals it could have ferried to shore.
A lake brimming with bourbon becomes the nesting ground for a firenado, after a lightning strike destroys a Jim Beam warehouse in 2003. Watch, as the whirl *really* gets going 20 seconds into the video
