Images from the Carr Fire, which sparked more than a month ago, shows a swirling fire tornado.

The tornado managed to quickly gain size and threaten nearby buildings, and tragically killed a firefighter and dozer operator.

The huge swirling mass of angry red fire and thick smoke was measured at massive a total of 1000 feet in diameter at base.

Reaching wind speeds of 136 to 165 mph, the tornado proved to be a major natural disaster.

With a size exceeding three football fields, the tornado tore through the ground with temperatures exceeding 2,700F (1450C), hot enough to melt steel.

The flames were strong enough to rip up large oak trees and fully destroy small and dead vegetation on the ground.

In its path were steel line support towers and vehicles, which were lifted by the powerful winds.

Within half a mile of the site was a steel shipping container, which was also picked up by the flaming vortex.
