LA CRESCENTA ? Fire officials Thursday announced plans for an Aug. 1 evacuation drill for residents in the Briggs Terrace area of La Crescenta in response to a spate of fires in the Angeles National Forest. The drill and proceeding public fire safety meeting were part of a report to the Crescenta Valley Town Council Thursday night in which officials said years of drought and dry vegetation, combined with numerous fires in the surrounding mountains, have brought fire season to the forefront early this summer.

Janet Blake said the worst moment of the Station fire came days after the blaze blackened the hills above her home on Upper Canyonside Road in La Crescenta. "What was most horrifying was to hear, 'Ma'am, you have to get ready for the mudflow," Blake said. Blake and her neighbors have been getting ready ever since. On Saturday, the Upper Canyonside Community Assn. and Crescenta Valley Fire Safe Council teamed up for a morning of clearing brush and reducing the risk of fire and flood danger.

GLENDALE — Rain this week may have added needed moisture to parched hillsides, but officials warned that fire danger remains high. Small fires have already blackened several acres in Southern California, including a light brush fire near the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in La Cañada Flintridge that officials said was sparked by a weed-whacker. Recent rains have only fueled vegetation growth like the light brush in the JPL incident, fire officials said. And much of the new growth has begun drying out due to increasing temperatures, which prompted the Angeles National Forest this month to raise its fire danger level to high, said U.S. Forest Service spokesman Nathan Judy.
