Some areas burned in the Station fire will reopen Friday

More than 40,000 acres of land in the Angeles National Forest that had been closed since the devastating Station fire will be reopened Friday.

The plan to open parts of the Big Tujunga watershed won final approval Thursday. The Station fire raged through the area in August 2009. 

Officials and volunteers had been working to reopen the area by Memorial Day Weekend, the U.S. Forest Service said.

The areas to be opened include Stone Canyon Trail, Trail Canyon Trail and the Delta Flat recreation areas.
