In this report we willtalk about tornadoes of fire, as they are produced, their main features.
We choose this natural phenomenon because it did not seem very impressive and we wanted to know how they behaved.A whirlwind of fire, also called tornado of fire, is a rare phenomenon in which the fire under certain conditions, acquires a vertical and forms vertical swirl like a tornado.
A fire tornado is a curious natural atmosphericphenomenon that originates and is in a similar manner to conventional cyclones, but withthe peculiarity that these vortices vortices are composed of burning fire. A fire that is drawn and rotated as aresult of different pressures and temperatures that occur in the formation of vortex. It is an extraordinary phenomenon that shows its power in the devastation oflarge fires, and unfortunately most forest.

However, some may have more than one kilometer high, contain winds inexcess of 160km/ persist for more than 20 minutes.
