As the evening began to settle in, the Station Fire changed directions and began to head towards La Canada Flintridge. By 11 p.m., 500 homes were under orders to leave their homes, sending hundreds of residents to an evacuation center. The nighttime photos were taken around the same time from the 2 Freeway and surrounding side streets in the neighborhood as flames grew near homes.

The fire began on Wednesday around 3:30 p.m. and had grown to 500 acres with 10 percent containment as of Thursday night.
