Ash Falls Like Snow From California’s Fifth Largest Fire

Ash from what is now California’s fifth largest fire ever falls over the area like snow and sometimes travels with smoke clouds thick enough to choke residents caught without masks.

The Thomas Fire, driven by high winds and fueled by dry brush and timber, has consumed about 360 square miles of land and razed more than 1,000 buildings. Its forced tens of thousands of evacuations and thousands more have fled their homes before any official order was given, The Associated Press reports.
