Move that car! City fire department issues Red Flag warning

Car and truck owners who normally park on narrow, winding hillside streets in areas prone to brush fires may have to move their vehicles off the streets on Thursday or risk having them towed.  A combination of  high winds and low humidity prompted the Los Angeles Fire Department to issue a Red Flag Alert, which restricts parking on city streets with posted Red Flag warning signs from 8 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 25 until 8 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 25,  according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.  The fire department  has identified streets where parked vehicles could block or hinder fire trucks as well as residents trying to evacuate.
