Station Fire Pushes Eastward But No New Evacuations Ordered Yet
This afternoon the monstrous Station Fire continued its slowed-burn of the Angeles National Forest and San Gabriel Mountains, moving east towards communities to the north of Pasadena, as predicted earlier today.
"The eastern flank is burning in the San Gabriel Wilderness Area near Devil's Canyon, said Nathan Judy of the U.S. Forest Service," and "in Altadena, the fire was burning in the forest at the top of mountains but was not visible from the foothill community," as hot shot crews readied for a battle there, according to LA Now.
Areas of concern for the 140,000+-acre blaze continue to be Mount Wilson, as well as the top of Lake Avenue, Little Tujunga Canyon, and Eaton Canyon. Residents of La Cañada-Flintridge and the northern Glendale portion of La Crescenta are no longer under any evacuation orders, and the Red Cross announced via press release that they will close the evacuation shelters set up at La Cañada and Crescenta Valley high schools later today.
