CBS 2 / KCAL 9: Fires Rage In Anaheim Hills

CBS 2 / KCAL 9: Fires Rage In Anaheim Hills - Check out the news videos.

The good news is that this Sierra fire in the Cleveland National Forest is still being kept on the forest-side of the 241 keeping it away from nearby residential neighborhoods. As usual, our firefighters are doing a terrific job.

Personally, on the Orange County coast we're downwind from this - far away, but still dealing with ashes and unhealthy air quality. From here the smoke is very visible today - mostly white, tinged with brown and black - as a plume low across the eastern sky.

I do have some family in Yorba Linda rather close to the fire, but not in its path at all, thank God. They're getting some amazing sights.

I hope and pray that the fire continues to be held back from moving into the residential areas. So far so good... "Cautiously optimistic" was a phrase used by one of the firefighters today.
