August 2011 marks the two-year anniversary of the Station Fire.
The Station Fire burned from August 26 to October 16, 2009. During that time 160,577 acres (251 sq mi; 64,983 ha) were burned, and 209 structures destroyed, including 89 homes.
The fire started in the Angeles National Forest near the U.S. Forest Service ranger station on the Angeles Crest Highway. Two firefighters were killed on August 30 while attempting to escape the flames when their fire truck plunged off a cliff.
The Station Fire was the worst wildfire in the history of Los Angeles County.
