A large wildfire in the San Gabriel Mountains, about 25 miles northeast of downtown Los Angeles, is generating plumes of smoke that are visible from space.
The blaze, dubbed the "Colby Fire," has burned more than 1,700 acres since it started early Thursday morning. Almost 2,000 residents have received evacuation orders, and two structures have already been destroyed by the fire. Police have arrested and charged three people with recklessly starting a fire.
