I learned about these clouds on NPR yesterday, and Hank pointed them out from the parking lot. When a forest fire burns, superheated air over the fire rises. The moisture it contains condenses into droplets and creates the "fire clouds." Unfortunately, they are thunderheads but the dry air below causes the rain to evaporate before it can reach the ground. So the result can be dry lightning, and possibly start more fires!
Morning sky over the Colville Indian Reservation. Just the sun rising.
