Morning Update


The Station Fire has now grown to more than 120,000 acres. Still, fire officials say the flame activity was somewhat subdued last night, due to an increase in humidity.

Firefighters are now expressing some cautious optimism that they may be getting a handle on the fire. But they're concerned that high winds may kick up this afternoon and increase the fire's activity.

We've updated our fire information page, and will continue to do so as the situation changes. And we'll be broadcasting the latest fire news on KCET-TV all day.

Atop Mt. Wilson, the Observatory and broadcast towers for some fifty TV and radio stations remain at risk. There are reports of fire retardant drops on the mountain top, but officials are not sending in fire crews. They say it's too dangerous. Roads are burnt out and crews could easily get trapped in the fire.
