Yesterday morning, a brush fire broke out in the Angeles National Forest. The Colby fire broke out after 3 campers were throwing pieces of toilet paper into their fire and they wind picked up. From there, its burned 5 homes and damaged 17 structures. The fire is 30% contained. The 3 campers that started the fire have been arrested. This just shows how important fire safety is!
