The Station Fire is now 93% contained, and is on track for full containment by September 19th. Firefighters are now holding the 132 mile containment line and preparing for increased temperatures and lower humidity over the next few days.

The fire is still active east of Mount Wilson, and nearby residents and commuters along the 138 may continue to see smoke for a few days.

There are also still some hot spots within the burn area that threaten to flare up again, but the firefighters are using infrared imaging to keep track of these spots.

As of today, the Station Fire has burned 160,557 acres of National Forest and cost $92,404,000 to fight (not including property damage).
