How to describe the Donut Man’s strawberry specialty? Great taste, messy filling. For nearly four decades, the Donut Man — a.k.a. Jim Nakano — has been selling the wildly popular strawberry doughnut. Along with his maple bars and Bavarian creams, it draws a steady stream of loyal customers to his Glendora shop.

The Colby fire that broke out near Glendora, north of Los Angeles on the edge of the Angeles National Forest, exploded in size Thursday morning as dry brush, steep terrain and winds made for rough firefighting conditions.

Nathan Judy, a spokesman for the U.S. Forest Service, said the fire had grown to at least 125 acres by 8 a.m. and that it was moving quickly “going up and down the hills.”

The fire was reported shortly before 6 a.m.

Judy said that when he arrived at the scene early Thursday morning the fire had burned only four acres. It then grew quickly to 40 acres and then ballooned even further, he said. [Live Blog, @LATimes

Restaurant Review : Donut Man (donuts) *8 out of 10*

Enormous Tiger Tails and deliciously sweet Strawberry Donuts are what’s happening at Donut Man.   Imagine fresh glazed strawberries stuffed between a split giant glazed donut and you have yourself the infamous & seasonal Donut Man Strawberry Donut.

I’m a hard sell on this ‘cuz donuts are not usually my thing but somehow the gooey sweet doughy concoction here got to me.  They’re feathery and fresh, not overly sweet and without the greasy coating feeling that some donuts give.  It was almost worth driving all the way to Glendora for!

They’re open 24 hours and there’s always a line.
