Firenado Melts Fire Hose – level 1

28-09-2018 15:00

In Canada, there are many wildfires. Firefighters are fighting one. A firenado picks up their hose. It pulls it 100 feet into the air. Then it melts the hose.

A firenado comes from a mix of wind, heat, and hot ground temperatures. The mix creates air that moves up. The air pulls in fire and small things.

Difficult words: firenado (a fire tornado), melt (make soft or turn to liquid – something like water), temperature (how hot or cold something is).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
