UPDATE 09/26/2009: Monrovia Canyon Park has been re-opened.
I'm a little behind with this one. Monrovia Canyon Park had reopened a little over a week ago after being closed due to the Station fire. The park was closed again a couple of days ago (and is still closed) due to the change in the weather (red flag warning). This time it's a day to day thing, depending on the weather conditions. The park is closed to both vehicles and walk ins. Call first before heading up there.

This is the map set up outside the Monrovia Pavilions supermarket on the corner of Foothill Blvd. and Myrtle Ave. The fire is now 94% contained with full containment pushed back to Thursday. I circled the 6% above that is not yet contained. It is the section directly above the cities of Arcadia, Sierra Madre and Monrovia. Let's hope the Santa Ana winds are milder than expected and this fire gets fully contained.
I believe this map is updated daily. If you're in the area, check it out.

Now that the sky is blue and the smoke is not as readily visible, it's easy to forget the fire is still burning out of control in the local forest. The Station fire is 87% contained with full containment, hopefully, by the end of the week.

So, a good show today but not much more. That's a good thing.
At this time the fire intensity in this area is very low and the fire is spreading very slowly.

It seems like a good time to take a fire break.
The fire seems to have slowed, containment is up to 38%, and the foothill cities (including Monrovia) appear to be catching a break.

The combining of the "Big" theme and the wildfire raging out of control in the local mountains seemed unavoidable. I can't think of anything bigger, or more devastating, here at the moment than the Station fire and the accompanying smoke clouds.
That's Mt. Wilson in the lower left with the transmission towers.
