A Firenado Sucks a First Responder's Firehose

posted by Mike Dellinger - 

A couple of months ago we saw a firenado turn into a waterspout.  Well, this firenado did something that some first responders in Canada had never seen before.  It took away their firehose by sucking it 100 feet into the air and melting it. 

They tried to hang on, but no luck.  In fact, one of the firefighters was so frustrated he threw a rock at it.

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. That's definitely a first. #firenado #startthepump #wildfire Note: It got over 200ft tall but the smoke was too think to see it clearly on video. Sorry for the profanity.
