Amazing photos of fire twister in Queensland outback

A RARE fire tornado has been witnessed near Thargomindah where grassfires have been burning for days.

Amateur photographer Belinda Easton photographed the rare phenomenon as it formed inside the inferno and went about 300 metres into the air.

Flames then broke off and went about 400 metres over a fire break, starting another grassfire. 

The rarely seen destructive phenomenon occurs when an intensely hot fire sucks in cold air.
