The South Coast Air Quality Management District has issued a smoke advisory due to the Colby Fire, and residents are urged to avoid unnecessary outdoor activities in areas directly impacted by the smoke.
Smokes from the fire can be seen blowing toward the coast, some 40 miles from the fire, on the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration satellites.
The Colby Fire has scorched 1,7000 acres Thursday morning in the Angeles National
Forest north of Glendora, prompting mandatory evacuations of 1,7000 to
2,000 people from 870 homes and school closures, according to officials.
There is zero percent containment and five structures have been damaged. One person has suffered minor burn injuries.
Here are some photos of the smoke locals have posted on social media.
