    Firefighters battling over hundred bushfires in the Bundamba suburb of Ipswich, Queensland, Australia, have observed an enormous “firenado” growing dangerously larger as it approaches suburban settlements.

    Aerial footage captured on Saturday a fire tornado forming in dry grassland and spreading rapidly towards settlements in Queensland and the eastern part of Australia. The expanding firenado has killed at least four people, while burning out over 680 houses, according to the NowThis News company.

    According to reports, authorities in Queensland State have announced an emergency warning to residents, as multiple fires rage across the region.
