Fire Devil Videoed

Fire Devil in Australia Outback - RF Cafe Video for EngineersAustralian photographer Chris Tangey caught this rarely seen "fire devil" on video. Just as a water spout is formed when a tornado touches down on a body of water and sucks water up into itself and a dust devil sucks up dust from the desert surface, this tornado landed on a brush fire and sucked the flame up into a 100-foot high towering inferno. Hence the name fire devil. I wonder why water spouts aren't called water devils?
