I knew I was seeing a lot of separate smoke sources…

The Griffith Park blaze erupted on the second day of a heat spell. The National Weather Service said downtown hit 97 degrees, 23 degrees above normal, tying the record for the date. Humidity fell to just 9 percent during the day. The region was already woefully short of moisture, with rainfall measured downtown more than 11 inches below normal.[…]

Elsewhere in the region, a 300-acre fire near California State University, San Bernardino, was 75 percent contained, the San Bernardino Fire Department said. There were no reports of damages or injuries.

In neighboring Orange County, a 140-acre fire in Featherly Regional Park was 70 percent contained and a 1,250-acre fire on a training range at Camp Pendleton in San Diego County was 80 percent contained.

For the geographically challenged 😉 Griffith Park is in LA County. Orange County is bordered to the north by LA County, to the east by Riverside & San Bernardino counties, and to the south by San Diego county (Camp Pendleton is a buffer between the two).
