If you couldn't tell by the wind, it's Red Flag time

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

It's that time for the high winds and the low humidity to bring us easy access to fire. All the fire you need could come this weekend so don't be dumb and smoke in the hills. And beware when you park in the hills as well. As of 10 a.m. tomorrow morning, the city will be towing your ass out of there.

What are we talking about? This is what we're talking about. This too (Official LAFD).
