Station Fire Unified Command will be hosting a community meeting in the town of Azusa Friday night, September 4, 2009

The Station Fire Unified Command will be hosting a community meeting in the town of Azusa Friday night, September 4, 2009 at 700 p.m. at the Azusa Senior Center, 740 North Dalton Avenue, Azusa, California and tomorrow morning at 10:00 a.m. in the Big Tujunga for the purpose of updating the public on the current fire situation and expected actions. The location in Big Tujunga is to be determined.

The fire has moved farther east into the San Gabriel Wilderness and is staying south of Hwy 2 and Mount Waterman.
In the Mount Wilson area fire crews continued extensive fuel modification work along with more retardant drops leading to some guarded optimism for the safety of the critical infrastructure there.

The area south and east of Mount Wilson is a very high priority for dozer and hand crews to construct fire breaks to keep the fire as far away from structures as possible . Firefighters are trying to fortify the existing truck trail system as a fire break.

Additional crews are performing brush work along Hwy 39 as a contingency should the fire move down to the San Gabriel River.

Bulldozers were instrumental in extending the line significantly in the Chilao area connecting Bare Mountain south to Lower Chilao Road. Additional dozer work is being done as a contingency to protect the Juniper Hills area.

It has been determined that the cause of the Station Fire is arson and is now a homicide investigation. Please contact the LA County Sheriff's Department at 323-573-2387 with questions.

The Station Fire, named because of its proximity to a nearby USFS Ranger Station has burned over 230 square miles of land within the Angeles National Forest and near surrounding foothill communities of La Canada Flintridge, La Crescenta, Acton, Soledad Canyon, Pasadena, Glendale and Sierra Madre. The goal of the Incident Management Team is to keep the fire west of Highway 39 and Angeles Crest Highway, east of Interstate 5, south of Highway 14, Pearblossom Highway, and Highway 138, and north of the foothill communities and the Angeles National Forest Boundary. The fire is moving into areas of the forest with no recorded fire history.

Tonight weather will be mostly clear with temperature between 64 - 74 degrees. Tomorrow will be in the low to mid nineties and 80 to 88 degrees in the upper elevations. The weekend should bring an increasing onshore flow and a cooling trend.
