Fort McMurray fire CREATED ITS OWN LIGHTNING... WTF?!
Can anyone show me an instance of where this phenomenon has ever occurred? The volcanoes doing it recently tripped me out (this was thought to me an EXTREMELY rare phenomena up until like a decade ago, now they all seem to do it), but a freaking forest fire? No way- Something is wrong here IMO.

from story:
"And to make matters worse, the intense heat is effectively creating its own weather, producing wind and clouds that generate lightning, but none of the rain that's needed to bring the blaze to heel.

That was the grim situation authorities laid out Friday morning as they grappled with the rapidly-spreading fire, which erupted Sunday in the heart of Alberta's oil patch.

"This fire is jumping kilometers at a time," said Chad Morrison, the manager of the province's wildfire prevention service. "We're seeing the fire spread where it's creating its own lightning fires out of this fire. This is an extreme, rare fire event."

They are covering some shit up with that lame-ass story- fracking wells blowing?

All you need are enough particles in the air floating around, rubbing against each other, and you'll get lightning. I've seen lightning created just by shooting a rocket into the air with a wire attached to it. Lightning really is not all that rare as you are thinking it is.
