"Fires at night"
A full moon rises over the active flank of the Colby Fire off San Gabriel Canyon Road in Azusa Thursday evening. Thousands of people were under mandatory evacuation orders overnight in the urban interface area. Such a large and serious fire in what should be California's wettest time of year has brought concerns to what 2014 fire season will hold.
Firefighters battle the Colby Fire near Glendale, California, USA, 17 January 2014. Over 500 firefighters, air tankers, helicopters and bulldozers are working to contain the fire which grew to over 1,700 acres.
