The LA County Fire Department is reporting and responding to two cases of civilian injuries sustained in the Station Fire. "2 civilians w/ burn injuries @ Big Tujunga fire station. 3rd degree over 50% of their bodies," comes the brief notation on the injured parties via the LA Co. Fire Twitter feed. Structures were reported as burning in this one of three branches of the Station Fire, which began Thursday in the Angeles National Forest above La Cañada Flintridge. Many people with cabins or similar homes in the Big Tujunga area may have not known, wanted, or been able to evacuate expediently, leaving them in the area and subject to injury.
