Good news. Authorities with the Angeles National Forest say that the Station Fire has now been contained to 91 percent with full containment expected on Saturday. The size of the fire remains at 160,557, roughly 250 square miles.

Last week, LAist posted how to volunteer after the fire has subsided. Casey Schreiner, an Angeles National Forest enthusiast, at Modern Hiker has some more tips:

volunteer groups are already staffing up and gathering names of interested individuals. The BAER team has set up an email address for those who want to help with rehab efforts, and you can contact them at stationfire.baer@gmail.com. There are also dozens of local and focused volunteer groups who would love to have an extra pair of hands on staff. The Los Angeles River Ranger District maintains a comprehensive list of volunteer groups, along with calendars of planned events at their web site. Their September newsletter should be posted sometime this weekend
