As we write, the Colby fire above Glendora has consumed 125 acres, and authorities are evacuating homes in the forest areas. The scanner is very active with firefighting traffic, and we'll keep monitoring to see if it will affect Altadena or adjoining areas.
Community correspondent Chris "The Skywatcher" Considine has shared some pictures of the superscooper airplanes that have been deployed to fight the fire this morning. The 'scoopers, from Canada, are under contract to LA County for fire season. PIctures after the jump.
