I remember seeing one of these in a book when I was kid; over a series of six or so pictures the entire thing eventually filled in with a cloud. The book was trying to push it as a UFO and to be fair it was rather otherworldly. I have no idea how much was know about these events at the time.

Here's a couple of possibilities as well...

From the youtube OP comments

"While having a drink outdoors at Pint on Milwaukee, we looked up to see a ton of smoke that looked like a small mushroom cloud, that quickly turned into this incredible perfect circle of smoke. Nobody had a clue what it was, but while walking down the street later we learned an electrical transformer had exploded, catching fire and sending this amazing explosive cloud into the air. The transformer itself fell onto a truck, crushing its toolbox and setting the truck on fire. Awesome!"

Or then there is this...

It does look like a votex ring. I'd never heard of that phenomena before.

It does not appear to be going up very fast, so it probably was not explosives involved. Also the girl probably would have heard the explosion. Maybe a very hot, but small fire, that made some initial black smoke, but very little after getting started?

Well, I think the little girl in The Twilight Zone who keeps the little town with people in it has grown up and started smoking. Smoke circles. :P

Here it is cropped and 4 It is neat how it threads back into itself--going narrower as one goes clockwise.

The far right is best at showing the narrowing.

Wow Seeder! You nailed it!

Too bad they didn't catch video of it in infra red. Looks kind of like a faulty cloaking device on a ship (think star trek) of some kind. Weird.
