Due to high winds and low humidity in the Arizona region, the large wildfire that has been raging in the state has grown even bigger.

According to the Arizona Republic:

The blaze, already the second-largest in state history, is zero percent contained and threatens to consume more than the 389,000 acres already charred. At 486 square miles, the fire has burned an area nearly the size of Phoenix.

The National Weather Service issued a “Red Flag Warning” for southeastern Arizona, the majority of New Mexico, as well as parts of Oklahoma, Texas and Colorado.

Frighteningly enough, high speed winds in combination with wildfires can sometimes lead to fire tornadoes, where a wind vortex actually becomes a column of rotating fire. If you encounter one of these natural nightmares, usually the best course of action is get away as fast as possible.

But apparently one mom in Arizona didn’t think this was the best advice. As her son was filming a massive fire tornado outside of their car, she’s busy taking phone calls, just chillin’. Check out her son’s reaction as the swirling column of fire starts approaching the car. Do you think he wants her to go?

Seriously, his directives are unclear. Should she go? Well, should she? What should she do, son?
