I remember this.. I was out driving around doing errands(or whatever, don't remember what now)
And one of those emergency broadcast alerts came over the radio, it was sunny at the time & I was thinking 'just a test & they didn't say'??
but then they said "tornado warning...." When they said where it was located, I was a bit surprised (having been by that general area plenty of times) - one of those rare tornadoes in the mountains!

I do wonder if at minimum smoke & heat from the fire strengthened that storm?

funny thing is, the station I was listening to doesn't even come close to coming in there .LOL.
