Californian wildfires: Sky turns orange in San Francisco because of smoke

Smoke from the wildfires in Californian has turned the sky orange over San Francisco.
People have woken up to orange skies in San Francisco because of the Californian wildfires. Wind has blown the ash from the fires across California. These smoke particles “only allow yellow-orange-red light to reach the surface, causing skies to look orange” according to Bay Area Air Quality.
