Firefighters in England spotted a rare "firenado" Tuesday.

The Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service filmed the phenomenon during a fire at a plastic's factory.

The video was posted to Facebook, and the fire service explained that fire whirls happen when cool air enters the top of the hot air causing a swirl similar to how a tornado is formed.

No one was injured, but black smoke could be seen for miles.
