Intense.

Some of those drops were maybe 75-100 yards upwind of the target and still drifted past the fire. In America, I think they cancel fire planes in high winds like these.

That long shot of the fire closing in on the radio shack looked like a pyroclastic flow, not a wildfire. Scary stuff.

I'll save you the trip to Google, volcanic floods usually caused by glacial melt from the heat of eruptions, which makes a super abrasive slurry flood that's essentially wet concrete made of volcanic dust, pumice, and trees...and often people.
