Station Fire Remains at 91% Contained as Crews Attend to Hot Spots
Hot spots and little areas of the Station Fire are all that remain for firefighters, say Angeles National Forest officials today. Crew are mopping up those spots and other smoldering areas that need attending to while other personnel are patrolling for unknown areas of danger. "We're making sure that everything that was burning is out now," said Tom Debellis, a Forest Service fire information officer, over the phone.
Full Containment--it's currently at 91 percent--is expected to be reached on Saturday. Over 160,000 acres burned, roughly 250 square miles, since the fire began three weeks ago today.
