Nighttime Fire Updates: Station Fire, Morris Fire, Cottonwood Fire, Palos Verdes Fire
The four major fires burning in the greater Los Angeles region were especially worrisome last night, but as of 10:30 p.m., things seem to be subsiding for the most part. Here are the updates for each of the blazes from fire information officers.
This blaze is the worst of the four at the moment. Since it began on Wednesday afternoon, it's been through 5,100 acres and still remains at zero containment, said Fire Information Officer Jennifer Sanchez with the Angeles National Forest. Around 1,800 homes remain threatened in La Canada Flintridge and residents in Altadena should be on alert in case the multi-directional fire moves closer to them. Currently, 6 to 12 mile per hour winds are moving the fire in a more northwesterly direction into the mountains. 637 fire personnel are on scene. [Find complete LAist coverage of the fire here]
Since Tuesday, this fire has burned 2,168 acres in the Angeles National Forest above Azusa and Glendora, but only threatening a few lightly populated areas within the mountains. Firefighters have been able to contain it at 85 percent and expect full containment by Monday, explained Sanchez. 1,369 fire personnel are on scene. [Find complete LAist coverage of the fire here]
