    Cool Racing fire

    Is a "racing fire" a fire devouring all in its path?

    Thank You

    I have never heard of a "racing fire", are you sure it's not "raging fire"?

    No. It says "Roaring, racing fire"

    Did you watch any of the news reports on bush/forest fires this year? If so, then I think "racing fire" describes the effect neatly.
