[Update, 4:55 p.m.: All Station Fire mandatory evacuations have been lifted in La Cañada Flintridge and La Crescenta except one area, says Bruce Quintelier of the Forest Service. The area still under an evacuation order is north of Markridge between Pennsylvania and Lowell with a voluntary evacuation from Santa Carlotta to Markridge between Pennsylvania and Lowell. See a map below]

Also, most school districts that were closed today will open tomorrow, except for Glendale, which will remain closed.

LA County Fire continues to update evacuation info for unincorporated and contract cities as the fire progresses. For affected areas within the City of Los Angeles, the LAFD is using their blog. In Glendale, the city has taken for their homepage and completely changed it for fire updates.
