Full containment of the month-long Station Fire remains just out of grasp, according to an update issued this morning. The massive wildfire continues to hover at 98% containment, however officials are not currently able to provide a specific date for 100%. This is because "a small portion of the containment line is completely inaccessible and cannot be reached by crews in a safe manner. This area of open line is located in the San Gabriel Wilderness near Twin Peaks and will be continuously monitored." Although the skies do not indicate that the area continues to burn, potential visitors to the Angeles National Forest are reminded that "travel and recreation within the fire perimeter is still extremely dangerous and not allowed," and multiple road closures remain in effect.

In Ventura County, the Guiberson Fire is now at 85% containment, and has only seen slight growth in the past few days. The fire has scorched a total of 17,500 acres in the Fillmore and Moorpark area, explains the Ventura County Star. By yesterday morning all the remaining evacuation orders and road closures had been lifted, and now fewer firefighters are needed on scene to battle what remains of the blaze. "Fire officials expected the blaze to be fully contained today or Sunday."
