First pic widens at the base. Like a tree. Or flag pole. Or not a laser anyway....
it could be though, if it ignites something in its path. If you look at both of the first two picture you'll notice it looks like a line of fire in the sky, which would indicate "something" ignited. Whether it's because of the ground based fire, or a weapons satelite is still up for debate.

Are lasers or weapons like are imagined in this CT even in the visible spectrum?
I'm thinking not.

My 2 cents on this...
Pic#1 ? probably is a tree fallen down. May be on fire...looks like it is being lighted by fire, and maybe burning at base.
Pic#3 ? Lighting? D.E.W.? ...who knows for sure. Something hit it.
Pic#2 here is where I take issue with your assessment. I don't think it's a fire whirl. Its too linear, and the angle is wrong. Look at all the surrounding smoke rising up; including the smoke that slightly obscures it. They are all rising as one would expect of a strong up draft from a fire. Give that there doesn't seem to be evidence of any strong cross wind seen in the smoke. If it WAS a fire whirl one would expect to see some kind of curvature in it, but there isn't. Therefore, the assertion that it may be a D.E.W. holds a lot more weight than a fire whirl IMHO.
