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.
