Most people have a hard time believing it's an Emmy until he pulls it out of its protective shell, Tyson said. The 21-year-old La Cañada High School graduate won the 2009-10 Northern California Area Emmy from the San Francisco/Northern California chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences for his work as an assistant editor on Mark Kistler's "Imagination Station" — a public television show that taught kids how to draw in 3-D. "I went into it without really thinking it was actually going to make it," said Tyson, a junior at Columbia College Hollywood in Tarzana said.

The fire burned 160,000 acres in the Angeles National Forest and blackened the hills above La Cañada, creating perfect conditions for dangerous debris flow. Engineers from the county’s Department of Public Works have spent the last six weeks working to identify at-risk homes and to develop individual engineering plans for each property.
