Atmospheric scientists find causes of firenado in deadly Carr Fire

Atmospheric scientist Neil Lareau at the University of Nevada, Reno has authored a paper in the scientific journal Geophysical Research Letters documenting the rare firenado, finding a number of factors that combined at just the right time and place to catalyze the deadly Carr Fire in Northern California. These observations may help forecasters and scientists identify -- and potentially warn - for future destructive fire-generated vortices.
