July 8, 2012 12:00:00 AM PDT
The National Weather Service issued a red flag warning Sunday for the Los Angeles County mountains and foothills due to high temperatures, gusty winds and low humidity.

The warning will be in effect until 9 p.m. Sunday.

A red flag warning means that critical fire weather conditions are expected. Along with the weather, fuels such as dry brush could create an extremely dangerous combination for a wildfire.
