I expect the tornado has picked up the flames and is drawing the fire over more ground a lot faster than the fire on its own.. Hence the flames get so high as it's a big woosh of air fanning the flames real fast and creating a 'fast burn' effect.. A bit like how a flash fire works when you open the door on a room full of flame..
