    Holy Fire as seen from Fullerton CA a couple days ago. Six floors up in an office building.

    From ABC: "The smoke from the California wildfires has not only been impacting the West Coast. Incredibly enough, it has reached New York City -- 3,000 miles away."

    Thanks Tony! That's how it looked shortly after I arrived at work and it got worse throughout the day, as you see here.

    Some people just want to watch the world burn.

    The rest of us just want to photograph it ;)

    My sisters old house would've been at risk of this fire as it is now encroaching onto her old neighbourhood. A few years ago (2008 maybe) we were over visiting and we spent a week in Santa Barbara. The whole week we were there the fires were burning and depending on wind direction everything was covered in ash and we were breathing the acrid smoke. It must be awful to live with that threat. Several of her friends have lost houses over the years.
