Fire officials with Angeles National Forest raised the fire danger level from “very high” to “extreme”.
The raise in the danger level will affect both the Angeles National Forest and the San Gabriel Mountains National Monument.
“Fuel moistures on the forest are very dry, this condition combined with high temperatures support rapid fire spread. By restricting the use of fire throughout the forest, and increasing staffing levels, the objective is to reduce the potential of a catastrophic wildfire starting” said Angeles Forest Fire Chief, Robert Garcia.
