Face Of The Day
A Los Angeles County fire fighter monitors hot spots as he fights the Station Fire August 30, 2009 in Acton, California. The wildfire, which broke out Wednesday afternoon near a ranger station and the Angeles Crest Highway above La Canada Flintridge, has burned more than 105,000 acres and has forced thousands of evacuations as nearly 12,000 homes are threatened. The monster blaze raging above Los Angeles grew in size Tuesday as weary firefighters voiced hope that a break in searing temperatures would allow them to make inroads against the inferno.
