Here is a little more info for you that I copied and pasted from my work e-mail. This was issued a few hours before the Angelus Hwy Fire occured.

The smoke seems to be pushing west from at least the La Canada fire. Just went outback to have a look. I'm not sure about the smoke from the Morris fire. It's looking gross here in the SFV. Hot and smokey. Hopefully by Saturday they'll have things knocked down and you won't have to worry.
This morning it looked like they had the La Canada fire out. It was clear and only a faint plume was rising from that area.
