Striking Photos Show Heroes Fighting the Glendora Fire

One of the firefighters watched the flames on the second day of the wildfire.

A wildfire has devastated the California cities of Glendora and Azusa, burning more than 1,700 acres northeast of downtown LA. Named after the trail where it's rumored to have started, the Colby fire first started on Thursday morning. Since then, three men have been arrested on suspicions that they started the campfire that blazed out of control. Evacuation orders were put in place early on Thursday, and although more than half of those families have been allowed to return to their homes, firefighters continue to battle the flames. See some incredible photos of the heroes who have gathered to help the community.
