Monday's Station Fire Coverage

Started the day with a lunch meal served to me and my friend Jonathan Alcorn by four gentlemen of the C's corp., at the fire command center near Little Tujunga road.
Soon we embarked on a treacherous journey looking to cover and photograph the Station fire, up Little Tujunga road all the way to the 138 near Wrightwood. We crossed the California aqueduct and passed many Joshua trees. Finally we came to an area off the 14 freeway and saw two wide body jumbo jets, one 747 and one DC-10, drop huge loads of red phoscheck on the wild fire. Finally made it up to La Cresenta to watch fire crews stop the flames from burning homes.
