With high winds and extreme fire danger across Southern California, a Red Flag Alert remains in effect for the City of Los Angeles as of 8:00 AM this morning. This means that street parking in posted Red Flag Zones is strictly prohibited, and cars parked on the street in these areas will be towed. Read more about Red Flag Alerts here.
As we are seeing in Sylmar and Ventura, wind can change a small fire into an out-of-control inferno in a matter of hours. With high wind in the forecast for the coming days, it is crucial we take every step necessary to safeguard our homes, neighborhoods and City.
During this Red Flag Alert, we are asking everyone to take the following precautions:
Clear brush from your property and report any signs of smoke
Fires spread much easier with brush to consume. Read LAFD’s recommendations for safe brush clearance and make sure your property is in compliance with clearance requirements. If you see smoke, report it immediately to LAFD by calling 9-1-1.
