Bootleg Fire Spawns Fire Tornado

(Beatty, OR)  --  Fire officials say the Bootleg Fire in southern Oregon has become so intense that it spawned a tornado of fire.  The National Weather Service says the fire is so large that it's creating its own weather and they confirm a firenado touched down last week.  Photos of the area show trees broken off at the trunk and in a circular pattern.  The Bootleg Fire has burned nearly 409-thousand acres and is 46-percent contained.
