    U.S. Forest Service with numerous agencies assisting. The fire is burning on Fed land. Mike Dietrich is the incident commander and heads a team primarily consisting of USFS lifers.
    CalFire is running the show in Oak Glen because the fire is on State responsibility lands.

    Mike: Under whose jurisdiction (or jurisdictions) is the Station fire?
