Massive ash fell yesterday across Santa Rosa, California as a result of the ongoing raging wildfire that’s growing and threatening the area!

The GlassFire has burned more than 42,000 acres with nearly 70,000 residents being forced to evacuate. Currently 0% contained. The pictures were captured by Morgan Balaei.

This year, it seems the ash looks different. It’s chunkier and everywhere. Everything in the air is tinted yellow-ish gray, with black spots for where the ash dots the ground. Some of the ash pieces almost look fibrous, like pieces of black string. Other pieces look like shredded bark. Anywhere you look, it’s there.

It’s unclear what accounts for the size of the ash. It could be debris from various structures that have burned, or pieces of bark, or light fuels coming up from the grass.
