As the Marek Wildland/Little Tujunga Fire continues to burn (now up to 3,200 acres with 20% contained), the Los Angeles Fire Department initiated red flag parking for narrow streets in hillside areas where it is difficult to get a fire truck through (this is what a red flag parking sign looks like). It is in effect until 8:00 p.m., Tuesday, October 14 or until further notice. Red flag parking days are independently called by the city during red flag warnings that are issued by the National Weather Service and other agencies when low humidity, high winds and temperature are a perfect mix for fire ignite and to sustain itself.
