Reaching 100 feet high, the twirling flame was caught by filmmaker Chris Tangey on September 11th. The Australian writes:
In a show lasting some 40 minutes, Tangey says, the largest uprooted mulga trees and hurled them skywards, a “proper tornado”, while the most spectacular swallowed a bushfire, sending an arc of twisting orange up toward the heavens. “It was like a dance of giants, really,” Tangey says. “There was a red one, a black one, a white one and one made of fire.”
