While Smoke Is Gone, Station Fire Is Still Burning

SCV is one week removed from danger; however fire is still not fully contained.

Just one week ago, the Santa Clarita area was finally getting a reprieve from the choking smoke and impending danger from the massive Station Fire, which burned up through the Angels National Forest between La Crecenta and Acton.

While Acton lost a handful of homes, the fire never fully threatened any residences in the Antelope and Santa Clarita valleys. It did, however, suffocate the entire LA basin with smoke for days.

Since last Friday the smoke has pretty much been a non-issue, but the fact remains that in some areas the Station Fire is still a looming threat.

Firefighters have worked for two weeks on the blaze, and now have it 77% contained. 1,850 structures are still threatened, and 82 homes have been lost so far as the flames charred through 160,557 acres. At this time, most of the danger is in the San Gabriel wilderness areas.

To date, the Station Fire has cost roughly $82 million to fight.

The cause of the fire has been ruled arson; however no suspects have been identified. That could soon change, as Governor Schwarzenegger has offered up a $100,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspect or suspects. If caught, the individual responsible could face arson and murder charges, since two firefighters were killed in action.
