- The Camp Fire is blazing through a swath of Northern California, and has so far burned through more than 20,000 acres.
- It’s one of three separate wildfires rampaging across California Friday.
- Laura Anthony, a reporter at a local ABC affiliate, captured the “fire devil” – also known as a “fire whirl” or “firenado” – towering through the wreckage.
- Fire devils are deadly. They can be created when the ground is superheated during a fire.
- The entire town of Paradise has been evacuated and has been destroyed by the fire.
- See Anthony’s video below:
