SLO County residents have seen smoke from the Thomas Fire drifting this way since Sunday morning, but a satellite image taken by NASA shows the smoke reaching all the way past Eureka.
The satellite image, which was tweeted out by the National Weather Service in Sacramento, shows a thick plume of smoke stretching the length of the California coast, from Santa Barbara to near the Oregon border.
The Thomas Fire has charred about 230,500 acres since it began last Monday night and is now the fifth-largest fire in California history. It is 15 percent contained.
