Fire Devils in Portugal

As wildfires continue to burn in Portugal, a rare fire devil was caught on camera Saturday.

It's an uncommon type of fire tornado, where wind and dust are caught burning in a swirling mass when induced by fire. On Sunday, 1,000 firefighters were on the ground battling five wildfires across the country.

Portugal has been devastated by fires this year as the country suffered from drought.

The deadliest fire in Portugal's history killed 64 people in June when it devastated the central region of Pedrogao Grande. Most of the fires were reportedly set accidentally or intentionally.

Wildfires in Portugal this year have accounted for more than one-third of the burnt forest in the entire European Union.
