Concerned about potential mudslides, Los Angeles County sheriff's officials said they will tow any cars parked in the hillside areas of La Crescenta, Montrose or La Cañada Flintridge.

"It is very important that the streets be cleared of vehicles so that they are not possibly swept away and damaged, or damage other property,” said Capt. Mike Parker. He also said the people need to keep roads clear so that emergency equipment can pass through the area whenever necessary.

So far, there have been no major mudslides or flooding reported in areas burned in 2009's Station fire.
