Station Fire Containment Increases to 93%
U.S. Forest Service officials announced tonight that the Station Fire is now contained at 93 percent, up two points since this morning. However, the size of the fire remains at 160,557 acres, roughly 250 square miles.
Crews are monitoring a couple hot spots, making sure they do not flare up into super conflagrations that could once again prompt evacuations in communities that neighbor the Angeles National Forest. But with recent weather conditions--cooler temperatures, high humidity, less wind--aiding firefighters, officials say that scenario is unlikely and that containment is expected this Saturday.
