Smoke drifted ominously from the west on Thursday, Aug. 18 to shadow Frazier Park and bring a slight haze to the Mountain Communities.
Smoke from the La Brea fire near Santa Maria has made its way over the Mountain Communities since the fire began the afternoon of August 8. Residents have expressed concern that a local fire has been the cause; however, the Forest Service has not reported any fires in our area.
