Bonfire Contest Causes Firenados
Occurred on January 1, 2019 / Scheveningen, Den Haag, The Netherlands
Info from Licensor: "An annual bonfire was held at the beach on Scheveningen during New Years. Every year, two neighborhoods hold a competition on who can build the largest bonfire. This year, the competition went out of hand and the bonfires were 48 meters tall. A strong wind came directly from the sea which also fanned the flames.
What happened were the resulting firenado's. The Boulevard at the beach was filled with people watching the fire and they needed to be evacuated."
