Brush Fire Burns Angeles National Forest Near Glendora

An out-of-control campfire might have started a 1,700-acre brush fire that destroyed at least two homes as it raced down a hillside and cast wind-blown embers into a foothill community south of Southern California's Angeles National Forest on Jan. 16, 2014.

This was taken from Englewild Dr. in Glendora from my grandparent's house. They are ok, no evacuation but they are being cautious since there are many palm trees on their street.
