Though the Station fire isn’t completely contained, La Cañada community members are showing their appreciation of all who have worked hard to battle it — including the two men who lost their lives. As of Wednesday, the Station fire was 62% contained with 160,000 acres burned. The Red Cross has vacated the La Cañada High gym, and all area residents have returned home. Today, the city of La Cañada Flintridge will host a community photo shoot at Memorial Park at 5:30 p.m. The resulting photo will be sent to the firefighters across the country who aided in the fight against the Station fire.
