'Fire tornado' spotted in Texas wildfire

- It was quite the scene in Amarillo, Texas when cameras captured a fire tornado cut through the edge of a massive wildfire.

A local news photographer was on the scene of the wildfire Thursday when the phenomenon happened.

The so-called tornado is not really a twister, but it caused by strong winds.

Those winds were already making fighting the fire difficult for firefighters.

The fire broke out in a less populated area of flat farmland, so few structures were in danger during the fires.
