Across Southern California where five separate fires burned Thursday, air quality was poor, and the smell of smoke was strong more than 50 miles away from the various blazes ranging from San Diego County to Malibu.

 

In Northern California, the fast-moving Ranch Fire scorched 85 acres in Santa Clara County Thursday.
