Eerie Photos of SoCal Fires

I know this isn’t related to Kitsap County, but I just had to share some chilling photos taken of wildfires spreading through portions of Southern California, more specifically the LA, Pasadena and Thousand Oaks areas. I don’t know who to give credit to concerning the pictures because I found them on a weather forum (click on the photos for a bigger picture):

fire-1

fire-2

fire-3

 

fire-4

fire-5

fire-6

Read the AP article about the threatening fires here

The huge billow of clouds you see in these pictures are called: “pyrocumulus” clouds, cumulus clouds caused by fire.

They really need a nice dumping of rain!!
