Since this morning, not much has changed with the Station Fire in the Angeles National Forest north of La Canada Flintridge, according to U.S. Forest Service officials. The fire is burning in two different directions with smoke traveling northeast, which is one direction the blaze is taking. But most concerns are focused on the portion moving southwest towards homes, 873 of which that are evacuated last night.

The fire, which began Wednesday afternoon, has consumed around 1,500 acres with zero containment. Road closures include Big Tujunga Canyon Road, Angeles Forest Highway and Starlight Crest.

The above photos were taken around noon. LAist Photographer Tom Andrews described the scene as intense--luckily the smoke was blowing in the opposite direction. He also took photos yesterday afternoon with LAist's Elise Thompson snapping shots late last night.
