World News – Wildfires ravaging the West Coast have created the scary phenomenon of firenadoes — dangerous columns of flame that suck in debris and spew hot embers for miles around.
They’re an amazing sight but dangerous for firefighters, as the tunnels suck in burning debris and can spit embers miles away, enlarging a wildfire’s path of destruction.
Most firenadoes usually last only a couple minutes.
The phenomenon can happen with smoke, too, when spiraling wind creates a smokenado.
