(no change from 9/1/09, update expected this afternoon)
The Sierra Madre Fire Department and City Officials are closely monitoring the Station Fire.
At this time, there is no imminent danger to our residents. In compliance with an order from the US Forest Service and the LA County Sheriff Department, the City is closing until further notice Bailey Canyon, Mt. Wilson Trail and the road up to Chantry Flats.
These are precautionary closures in response to the Los Angeles National Forest "Area Closure Order" which includes the mountain areas above Sierra Madre.
If the fire becomes a threat to Sierra Madre, information will be posted on the City web site, SMTV-3, e-Blast, and City of Sierra Madre Emergency Blog.
