The March 6, 2017 Southern Plains wildfire outbreak is a completely overshadowed and basically forgotten event despite the extent of devastation that occurred. 7 people were killed, 1.2 million acres burned, and at least 87 structures were destroyed. Some fires ran 40+ miles in only 5 hours. In addition, the fires generated at least 2 fire vortices that were visible on radar, the only such case of that occurring on the plains that I know of. One had a rotational velocity of 43.7 kts while the 2nd one had a rotational velocity of 38.4 kts. This Vrot is usually associated with EF1-EF2 tornadoes.
