The U.S. Forest Service has raised the Fire Danger Level on the Angeles National Forest from moderate to high as summer temperatures continue to dry out vegetation. The high fire danger level is the third in a six-level, graduated fire danger rating system. A variety of factors determine the level, including the moisture in vegetation, weather conditions and firefighting equipment needs due to national fire activity. Despite the change, there are no new campfire restrictions: Open wood and charcoal fires will still be permitted in developed campgrounds and picnic areas only.

Karen S. Kim GLENDALE -- Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport will continue collecting a $3 passenger facility charge for the next 11 years, but this time the funds will be used for a different purpose, the Federal Aviation Administration said Monday. The airport had been collecting a $3 passenger charge since 1994, but the revenues were designated for acquiring land for a new terminal. Through the FAA's approval of a new PFC application, the airport can now collect up to $73.7 million, and more than $66 million will go toward the acoustical treatment of Burbank and Sun Valley homes and schools, airport officials said.

Up in the San Raphael Hills, just a few hundred yards from the Glendale Police Shooting Range, sits a critical piece of firefighting equipment -- the Remote Automated Weather Station. The small station, an aluminum frame made up of pipes, is used to track the city's weather conditions, Glendale Fire Prevention Coordinator Doug Nickles said.
