The largest plume, top left, is from the Thomas Fire, which has burned more than 50,000 acres in Ventura County. Smaller plumes from the Creek and Rye fires, closer to Los Angeles, also are visible.
Powerful Santa Ana winds fueled a fast-moving fire that swept into Ventura, California, on December 5, 2017. After burning for roughly one day, the blaze had charred 50,000 acres (20,000 hectares), destroyed at least 150 structures, and forced more than 27,000 people to evacuate.
