These are different, the ones in laguna hills are part of a fire storm, where the weather affects a fire.
The ones this guy cought are are a tornado that the materials within the tornado actually catch fire from the friction.
There is no other fire other than within the tornado.
Very rare indeed, and some great photos.
Sorry @thorkl, you're wrong. These were caused when wind kicked up existing fires into a vortex. We have seen images of this before.
Yep, you are wrong Thorkyl. These are very common in fires. Mostly the only people who see them are firefighters. I have never seen one that lasted 40 minutes but on the other hand I was working and never had that much time to stand there and just stare at one. They are dangerous because they are blasting intense heat and they swirl around and you don't know exactly were they are going to go.

Usually, Lowhand and Jameson have a message for guys, “where’s your zipper sir”?

Great job Ryan, it should be left to the states, Fed anti-pot laws should be scrapped, as well as all the money spent trying to eradicate it.
Or maybe the federal government should just decriminalize it. Why should someone in Kalifornia, Oregon or Washington State be treated differently on marijuana that someone in Arizona, Nevada, Idaho, Utah, Wyoming or any other state?

That’s an old Demonrat trick : ” If you call yourself a Christian, you have to be a socialist to prove it”. By the way, that’s the only time you hear leftists quote Christian doctrine, when they’re trying to convince you that Jesus was a socialist, and you should be one too. The rest of the time they mock and ridicule Christian doctrine and those who practice it.

Why the outrage folks? For the last 50 years, liberals have been telling us to get over our Puritanical views on nudity and bodily functions and embrace the organic wonders of the human body. This mom’s just doing what liberals tell all of us: Do whatever the hell you please whenever the hell you feel like it, and the government will “share responsibility” among all of us for the results of your bad decision making. How’s that been working out for ya?

We were promised “A Melting Pot” and what we got was “A Chamber Pot”

Ah, so anybody who doesnt’ want $1.2 trillion budget deficits is a “right wing extremist”? wow, are these morons brainwashed. Clinton’s a low level operator who reaches high levels because the Demonrat Party is filled with gullible morons.

No, no, when asked about women, Clinton said, “I feel their drain”.

Ah, how this professional liar rewrites history to spin the Big Lie. He was dragged kicking and screaming to the budget balancing table back in the 90s, as were the rest of the Demonrats, and now they take credit for it. Throw the bums out, again!

And if you can’t trust the word of Billy BJ, who can you trust? “Shared prosperity” means “higher taxes and more welfare” for those of you decoding this Newspeak at home.
"Shared prosperity", "spread the wealth", same song and dance, different election cycle. "You didn't built that", "we belong to the government": PLEASE. Since we are long past "1984", I don't think too many people are concerned about it anymore.
