Red Flag parking restrictions set for Wednesday in Pasadena

April 29, 2014 12:00:00 AM PDT
The Pasadena Fire Department will activate Red Flag parking restrictions in the city starting overnight Tuesday due to weather conditions and fire danger.

The parking restrictions, scheduled to begin at 2 a.m., Wednesday, April, 30, are issued to ensure that fire department vehicle access is unimpeded in narrow or winding roads in the urban-wildland interface areas, as well as to facilitate the evacuation of affected residents.

A Red Flag means critical fire weather conditions are expected, the department said. The combination of the hot weather pattern with dry fuels could create extreme fire danger.
