A "firenado" swirling around in England is like a scene straight out of an apocalyptic movie. 

The fire whirl, which is caused by hot flames hitting cooler air, was captured on camera in Derbyshire as it spun in a vortex resembling a tornado. 

They can be extremely dangerous.

Firefighters battling the blaze Tuesday at a plastics factory caught sight of the spinning flames.

Thankfully, no one was hurt.
