Smoke from Southern California’s multiple wildfires is making for some surreal photographs
Four fires, Creek, Rye, Thomas and Riverdale, are burning in Southern California as of Tuesday morning. The fires have been spurred by high winds in the area, ranging from 40 to 70 mph across the region.
The smoke from the fires in northern LA County and Ventura County have spread over the San Fernando Valley and the coastal cities, degrading the air quality and causing poor visibility.
Here’s a look at the smoke blanketing Southern California.
