Join the Facebook Station Fire Investigation - Angeles National Forest Group

The U.S. Forest Service let this happen over 250 Square miles in the Angeles National Forest.  That is equivalent to 11 times the size of Manhattan Island, New York

The United States Forest Service has let Americans down with their handling of the Station Fire in the Angeles national Forest.  It's time to let your senators know how you feel about this waste of taxpayer money and damage to our country's National Forest.

The Station Fire (26 August - Estimated Containment Date: Unknown, 98% contained as of 27 Sept., 160,557 acres (251 sq mi; 64,975 ha), 209 structures destroyed, including 89 homes) started in the Angeles National Forest near the U.S. Forest Service ranger fire station on the Angeles Crest Highway (State Highway 2).  Two firefighters were killed on 30 August while attempting to escape the flames when their fire truck plunged off a cliff. The blaze threatened 12,000 structures in the National Forest and the nearby communities of La Canada Flintridge, Glendale, Acton, La Crescenta, Pasadena, Littlerock and Altadena, as well as the Sunland and Tujunga neighborhoods of the City of Los Angeles.

Many of these areas faced mandatory evacuations as the flames drew near, but as of 6 September, all evacuation orders have been lifted. The Station Fire has been burning on the slopes of Mount Wilson, threatening numerous television, radio and cellular telephone antennas on the summit, as well as the Mount Wilson Observatory, which includes several historically significant telescopes and multimillion-dollar astronomical facilities operated by UCLA, USC, UC Berkeley and Georgia State University.A 40 mile (64 kilometer) stretch of the Angeles Crest Highway has been closed indefinitely due to guardrail and sign damage, although the pavement remained largely intact.


On 3 September, officials announced that the Station Fire was caused by arson, and a homicide investigation had begun. Investigators have discovered a substance at the fire's point of origin which they believe may have accelerated the flames. As of 15 September, $93.8 million (USD) had been spent fighting the fire at 91% contained with full containment by 19 September.[35] At 160,557 acres, the Station Fire is the 10th largest in modern California history,[28][36] and the largest wildfire in the modern history of Los Angeles County, passing the 105,000 acres (164 sq mi; 42,492 ha) Clampitt Fire of September 1970.


The Forest Service claims that it underestimated the fire in its early onset, before it erupted into the largest wildfire in the history of Los Angeles County.

Angeles Forest Fire Chief David Conklin told The Los Angeles Times that officials thought they had the Station Fire "fairly well contained" on the first day and decided to scale back water-dropping helicopters and crews on the ground. By the time crews were reassigned to the fire, it had grown out of control.

However, many people feel the forest service intentionally let the fire burn the forest.  Property owners and concerned citizens are demanding a formal Congressional investigation as to why the U.S. Forest Service did not contain the fire within the first 48 hours when it was manageable.   The Forestry's actions make no sense at all unless their goal was to burn the forest.

To date, the fire has burned more than 160,577 acres, destroyed 89 homes and killed two firefighters, Capt. Tedmund "Ted" Hall, 47, of San Bernardino County, and firefighter Specialist Arnaldo "Arnie" Quinones, 35, of Palmdale.

If you feel their should be a congressional investigation, please contact your senator.  This fire has already cost taxpayers over $100 Million and will end up costing much more.

Station fire victims call for U.S. probe into Forest Service's response
Residents are critical of the agency's decision to scale back an attack on the blaze on the night before it began to burn out of control. Two firefighters were killed in the wildfire.

I Didn't Speak Up by by The Reverend Martin Niemoller

In Germany, the Nazis first came for the Communists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Catholics, but I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant.
Then they came for me...By that time there was no one to speak up for anyone.

Did Feds Cause the Station-fire Disaster

Ugly allegations that fire officials reduced air support, tankers and backup crews

Its been six weeks since the Station Fire roared out of control on a sweltering August weekend, but troubling stories grip the communities that edge the Angeles National Forest, where talk is of a mysterious but widely acknowledged pullback by fire crews, the odd lack of crucial water tankers and helicopters, and information screwups that left fire brass seemingly unaware that Big Tujunga Canyon had burned to the ground.

Community meetings, instead of dying out, are being held every few days, Los Angeles County Supervisor Mike Antonovich wants a congressional investigation, and jarring news reports by Paul Pringle at the Los Angeles Times increasingly suggest that major errors by fire officials helped to create the biggest fire in Los Angeles County history.

I was at another meeting just last night, of the Vogel Flats survivors, where the ranger station and 30 of the 90 cabins burned, says Mary Benson, a prominent activist in the foothills. We havent gotten to the bottom of why it all burned, but its like friendly fire in a war, where everyone is covering their butts and not explaining their real roles in what occurred.
