The Station Wild Fire Spreads To Over 100,000 Acres North Of Los Angeles

PASADENA, CA - SEPTEMBER 4: The 241-square-mile Station Fire continues to blacken forests and race up rugged canyons along its eastern front deep in the Angeles National Forest on September 4, 2009 northeast of Pasadena, California. The 10-day-old blaze is the biggest wildfire in Los Angeles County history. Officials believe it was started by an arsonist along Angeles Crest Highway near La Canada, California. If caught, the suspect could be charged with first-degree murder for the deaths of two firefighters whose truck rolled down an 800-foot mountainside as they retreated from flames. In its march across the San Gabriel Mountains, the Station Fire has destroyed 76 homes, mostly cabins. The fire is about 42 percent contained and firefighters expect to have it fully surrounded by defensible fire lines in mid-September. (Photo by David McNew/Getty Images)
