Not that this compares to the footage shot by TV cameras, but here's the incredible smoke plume/bank as seen from Western Avenue in Gardena. That's about thirty miles, going straight north.
Pretty impressive, The Palos Verdes fire could not be seen from points only 2-3 miles away, because of the canyons and hills.
But I guess the real story is that we're breathing all this gunk, one way or the other. Nothing can be done about that.
