Short summary
In this paper we have used remote sensing data to analyse the atypical dynamics of a wildfire in the Grose Valley of the Blue Mountains of New South Wales in November 2006. We show that these dynamics included fire channelling. We link the fire's dynamics to the formation of pyrocumulonimbus cloud in its plume. We have thus shown that prediction of pyroCb formation may be improved by understanding atypical fire behaviour.
