Station Fire spreads, mass evacuations ordered

From the Los Angeles Times:
The Station fire in Angeles National Forest tripled in size today, spreading rapidly to the east and west and threatening at least 10,000 homes in a broad swath of foothill neighborhoods in areas including La CaƱada Flintridge, La Crescenta, Glendale, Altadena and Big Tujunga Canyon as temperatures reached triple digits and flames drew closer to homes.

Three to five homes in rural Big Tujunga Canyon were lost, authorities said.
The Times reports the fire had reached 20,000 acres as of Saturday and forced the evacuation of 4,000 homes. At least three people were injured.
