Vegetation and homes hundreds of feet from the column also caught fire before the twister arrived, he said. It was as loud as a roaring jet engine.
Firenadoes are formed from a fire’s intense heat, causing the air to heat up quickly and rise rapidly. That, combined with surface winds that are obviously quite strong, creates a vortex similar to a dust devil, as explained in this short video:
Firenadoes rampaging around that are the equivalent of powerful tornadoes! Hard to get more apocalyptic!
