46K Acres Burned In Station Fire To Reopen In Angeles National Forest


ALTADENA (CBSLA.com) — About 46,000 acres of the Angeles National Forest will reopen Saturday after the land was charred during the 2009 Station Fire.

The fire killed two firefighters and burned about 161,000 total acres, U.S. Forest Service officials said.

Some areas remain closed out of concern for public safety or because more work is needed on trails, according to the Forest Service.

The closed areas include Lower Gabrielino Trail, Barley Flats Trail, Colby Trail, Ken Burton Trail, Millard Water Fall User Trail, Santa Clara Divide Road, Messenger Flats Campground, Lighting Point Campground and Big Buck Campground.
