A brush fire that began on a hillside in Orange County quickly spread Monday into an Anaheim Hills neighborhood, destroying homes and sending thick smoke over the area.
That smoke could be seen from around Southern California, from inland areas to Disneyland and the coast. From Mount Wilson in Angeles National Forest north of Los Angeles, the fire appeared as a distant orange glow. Ash rained down on parts of Orange County and the sky appeared to turn orange as the sun set on a devastating day of wildfires in California.
Below, a look at how the fire appeared from around the region.
Time-lapse video from Mount Wilson in the Angeles National Forest north of Los Angeles captures the bright orange glow of the Anaheim Hills fire on Monday Oct. 9, 2017 at about 10:30 p.m.in eastern Orange County. The Canyon Fire 2 brush fire started that morning and spread rapidly into a neighborhood, burning houses and forcing evacuations.
