Red-flag warning of fire danger goes up in L.A. area
Dry winds are expected to return to the Los Angeles area this afternoon, prompting the National Weather Service to issue a red-flag fire danger warning.
Heavy winds last week sparked several fires around the region, including a large fire in Ventura County. But this week, forecasters said temperatures will be lower and humidity will be higher.
The red-flag warning begins at 6 tonight in areas such as Angeles National Forest and is expected to end at 6 p.m. on Friday.
There are no major wildfires burning, but the massive Station fire remains only 98% contained. Officials have said they might not get full containment until it starts raining.
