As if somebody set it on fire

My friends invited me for a sunset sail. I wasn’t sure if we would get any good sunset, considering how hazy and overcast the west sky had been all day. But I certainly welcomed the opportunity. We met at the MDR marina where his boat was parked, and we were ready to go in less than 20 minutes. As leaving the marina and sailing out into the open ocean, we noticed that the thick layer of clouds that covered the sky was clearing up above the Santa Monica Mountains. As the sun appeared in the opening, everything turned gold. When the sun dropped behind the mountains, the sky that had been smeared in gold started glowing orange and then red. As if somebody set it on fire, the flames started spreading across the sky like crazy.
