As firefighters get a better handle on the Station Fire, evacuations are lifted and shelters close. Two remain open, the Red Cross announced today. One at Verdugo Hills High School in the L.A. neighborhood of Tujunga (10625 Plainview Avenue, Tujunga, CA 91042) and the other at Golden Valley High School in Santa Clarita (27051 Robert C. Lee Parkway, Newhall, CA 91350). Since the beginning of the Station Fire last week Wednesday, the Red Cross has sheltered more than 700 people at seven shelters across the Los Angles region with the help of 500 volunteers. The organization estimates that they served 5,100 meals, 8,600 snacks and 525 comfort kits (containing a toothbrush and other personal hygiene items). Dozens of clean-up kits for homes were also given away.
