Couple Gets Incredible Close-Ups Of Raging Wildfires

This footage shows a pair of daredevil storm chasers standing inches away from a massive raging blaze in the middle of a dry grass field.

The stunning burning fields were filmed by Robert Brock, 54, who told Newsflash in an interview that he enjoys going storm-chasing whenever he has time off his regular job as a maintenance mechanic.

Robert, who comes from the city of Swifton, located in Arkansas, in the USA, said he and his wife Tammy cover anything weather-related and later share it on their Facebook and Twitter pages.

In one of their latest expeditions, the couple filmed dramatic close-ups of two wildfires violently burning across rice fields, taken hours apart on 23rd October.

Robert said: “I took the first video near Swifton Arkansas and the other near Newport Arkansas.”

The first piece of footage shows the chasers standing dangerously close to the inferno, which has completely shrouded the background in thick gusts of smoke.

In the second footage, the high-rising flames can be seen scorching up the dry grass at a high rate, having already blackened the ground.

Robert explained that the cause of the fires was controlled rice field burns that got out of control from the high winds that blew across Arkansas the day of.
