    Huge cloud of smoke in the distance...

    Can somebody please tell me what fire is going on here in SoCal around Aliso Viejo (where I live).

    I just opened my window to a huge, distant cloud of smoke and the news is saying nothing.

    Which direction do you see the smoke? I live near the northern part of the 73 toll road near Bonita Canyon and I don't see any smoke at all.

    LA Times has a front page link to a story about a brush fire near Pyramid Lake - I'm not from down there so I have no clue if that's the one you are seeing?
    I love my awesome crazy wonderful friends!!

    Apparantly multiple brush fires broke out and the news is finally acknowledging it.

    I noticed a plume of smoke in your direction yesterday when I was down in Newport. Don't know if it's a brush fire or a burn off conducted by the forestry dept. Which is still a brush fire but just controlled.

    Pyramid lake is north of Six Flags (which is about 75 miles from OC). If they were seeing the smoke from that far, that'd mean it was a pretty big fire.

    I'm about 30 miles (as the crow flies) from Pyramid and didn't see anything.
