Red Flag fire warning extended through this evening

Low humidity prompted officials to extend the Red Flag fire warning through this evening.

Gusty winds, high temperatures and dry conditions are predicted for mountain and canyon areas around the L.A. region today. There were no major fires Thursday, but fires broke out Wednesday in Santa Barbara County and Griffith Park.

The National Weather Service said the heat wave should break by Saturday morning, when temperatures are expected to drop significantly.
