UPDATE: Officials: Smoke in the air not from local fire

NWS now says smoke from Camarillo Springs fire; ash falls in SCV

Where there’s smoke, there’s not always fire.

Despite smoke that descended on the Santa Clarita Valley Friday afternoon, no fires were reported in the area, two Los Angeles County Fire Department officials said.

Instead, the smoke that hung in the Santa Clarita Valley was probably blowing in from the fire that broke out in Camarillo on Thursday and moved to the coast Friday, a National Weather Service forecaster said.

By Friday evening ash was raining on the west side of the Santa Clarita Valley. The forecaster said there were reports of ash falling in the San Fernando Valley, as well.

The smoke in the Santa Clarita Valley was initially believed to be from a fire that broke out in Glendale around 2 p.m., but that fire was nearly out by Friday evening.
