STAY SAFE IF YOU’RE IN L.A.: Sand Fire Grows to 11,000 Acres in Santa Clarita Area, Is 10% Contained; Evacuations in Effect.

“The Sand Fire continues to burn part of the Angeles National Forest near Santa Clarita Saturday morning causing much of the Los Angeles Sky to look orange and cloudy,” the Los Angeles Daily News adds. A DJ on Sirius-XM broadcasting from L.A. mentioned how darkened much of the L.A. sky is today. It’s certainly ominous looking in this AP wire photo taken today:

Heavy smoke from a wildfire is seen from Golden Valley Road and Five Knolls Drive Santa Clarita, Calif., on Saturday, July 22, 2016. The fire in northern Los Angeles County grew, darkening skies with smoke that spread across the city and suburbs, reducing the sun to an orange disk at times. The South Coast Air Quality Management District warned that at times air would reach unhealthy levels. The fire erupted Friday afternoon in the Sand Canyon area near State Route 14 as the region was gripped by high heat and very low humidity. (Katharine Lotze/The Santa Clarita Valley Signal via AP)
