Leicestershire Fire Service Firefighters have now released footage of the blaze.

The fire has caused considerable damage to the factory, but no injuries have been reported from the scene.

He said: 'We will be operational by the end of today though or as soon as the police and fire are finished.

The blaze was so bad, Augusztinyi said, that it took firefighters a day and a half to extinguish the flames: The first call reporting the fire came in shortly after 1 a.m. Tuesday, but the last fire activity ceased at 1 p.m. Wednesday, he said.

Video of the rare natural phenomenon shows what appears to be a tornado that is on fire, swirling flames reaching up towards the sky at a height of more than 50 feet as firefighters douse it in water.

Firefighters had been tackling the blaze since about 01:20 BST at Ravensbourn Plastics Ltd on Occupation Lane, in Albert Village, Swadlincote.

The firenado occurred after cool air entered the top of the hot air, causing a swirl similar to how a tornado is formed, Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service explained under a Facebook post of the video.

"While the site of the fire is not directly next to any residential properties, we are still advising locals to keep their windows and doors closed until the fire is completely out and the smoke has subsided".

'Had it been near Christmas when the trays are returned we could have had up to 1.5 million there and it probably would have been something you could see from space'.

No one was injured in the blaze, and the cause of the fire has not yet been determined, Augusztinyi said.
