Firefighters capture 'firenado' destroying Derbyshire factory

Firefighters capture 'firenado' destroying Derbyshire factory”

Metro reports that the fire broke out just after 1.40 a.m. local time with hundreds of plastic trays igniting before the blaze spread to an adjacent building as well as a number of forklifts on the property.

A "firenado" has been filmed by Leicestershire fire and rescue service as they responded to a plastic pallet blaze in Derbyshire.

Firefighters were joined by colleagues from other counties as they tried to prevent the fire spreading.

Officers from the fire services had been tackling the fire since about 1.20am on Tuesday at Ravensbourn Plastics Ltd on Occupation Lane, in Albert Village, Swadlincote.

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

The stunning "firenado" was captured by firefighters.

According to the Leicestershire Fire and Rescue service's post on Facebook, the odd sight was created by fire cool air entering the top of the hot air causing a swirl, similar to how a tornado is formed. The fire "completely gutted" the outside storage unit where the fire started, destroying more than 600,000 trays.

He said: 'We will be operational by the end of today though or as soon as the police and fire are finished.

A spokesman for Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service said: "The fire involved approximately 100 metres x 100 metres of stacked plastic pallets".

"It was quite an intense fire, as you can see from the video", he told the Globe in a telephone interview Wednesday afternoon.
