There has been quite a bit of smoke at the west end of Big Bear Valley this afternoon, though this is drift smoke as there are no fires burning within Big Bear or on the San Bernardino National Forest at this time [3pm, August 13]. Officials with the Forest Service suggest that this smoke is drifting our way from the La Brea Fire, which is burning on the Los Padres National Forest in the Santa Barbara area.
- No Fires in the Big Bear Valley; Southwest Winds Bringing Drift Smoke from Santa Barbara-Area La Brea Fire
- Oak Glen and Yucaipa Fires at 60% Containment; South Winds May Bring Drift Smoke to Big Bear
- Oak Glen and Yucaipa Fires Approaching Full Containment; Continued South Winds May Bring More Drift Smoke Our Way
