Redneck Fire Tornado Chasers

Posted by on Mon, Jun 13, 2011 at 3:30 PM

So there's this video of a "fire tornado" in Arizona—which I believe to be absolutely legit. However, I'm not too sure about the audio track which seems to suggest a hillbilly family desperately trying to videotape the phenomenon, instead of trying to escape. (True or not, it's funny.) I hear ya, hillbilly mom. I really hate fire tornadoes, too. GO, MOM, GO!!!

They are called fire whirls. Fairly common on large fires actually.

I believe the audio. I've been to Arizona.

Funny, but faked. The footage is from AP and it's from a fire in Hawaii. I would like to to see the video that supplied the audio though.
