Firenado: Colorado controlled burn spread by dust devil

What was considered a controlled burn looks anything but after a massive dust devil swept up fire and tumble weeds.

The video above was posted by firefighters cleaning up at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge in Colorado.

The burn was to clear overgrown vegetation, which is actually supposed to reduce wildfire risk to homes nearby.

The unexpected dust devil ended up burning an extra acre of land but no property was damaged and no one was injured.
