The Station Fire holds at 94% containment, but the expected date of full containment has been pushed back to September 24th, due to the start of some mild Santa Ana Winds. Firefighters continued their efforts, dropping 250,000 gallons of water and 100,000 gallons of retardant on the fire today.

The Angeles National Forest remains closed, and the cost of fighting the fires has just topped $86 million.
