With record-high temperatures expected across Southern California on Monday, the National Weather Service has issued a red-flag warning for several areas.
The scorching temperatures, combined with gusty winds, single-digit humidity and dry vegetation could indicate high fire danger.
The warning is in effect through 6 p.m Tuesday for the Santa Clarita Valley and the San Gabriel Mountains in Los Angeles and Ventura counties.
The Angeles National Forest in L.A. County and Ventura County's Los Padres National Forest are also under red-flag warnings.
