Black Ash from the Station Fire: The Unwanted Gift That Keeps on Giving
Last week's heavy winds blew another round of ash from the Angeles National Forest down to the communities below -- including Glendale. That means we once again have a light coating of black dust on our sidewalks, driveways, cars and homes.
That can't be good. What will be the long-term effects of breathing all this gunk in? And at what point will the leftover ash from this summer's Station Fire stop raining down on us?
