Jim Beam factory hit by lightning releases 800k gallons of fire whiskey | Daily Mail Online

Firenado! 800,000 gallons of Jim Beam accidentally released into a Kentucky lake bursts into flames after being hit by lightning… before a tornado sucks the flaming liquid 100 feet up into the air

  • The freak weather destroyed a warehouse in Kentucky holding bourbon
  • The inflammable spirit flowed into a nearby creek towards a lake
  • A lightning strike then set fire to the bourbon on the lake’s surface 
  • A small tornado sucked up the flaming liquid and set fire to nearby trees 

A Jim Beam warehouse in Kentucky was struck by lightning releasing 800,000 gallons of bourbon into a nearby lake. Then, the lake was hit by a ‘firenado’ setting the inflammable liquid alight.

The firenado was caused when a bolt of lighting hit the ground setting a fire which was in the path of a tornado, which sucked up the flames, creating a terrifying spiralling inferno.

A video of the dramatic scenes has been viewed more than four million times on the internet.
