Claremont Wilderness park closed

The Claremont Wilderness Park will be closed until further notice due to dangerous fire conditions. The park has been closed since Sunday.

The National Weather Service has issued a Red Flag Warning for Los Angeles Montain areas. A red flag warning means that critical fire weather conditions are either occurring now or will shortly. A combination of strong winds, low relative humidity, and warm temperatures will create extreme fire behavior.

To keep cool in the hot weather, the city is offering the Hughes center as a "cool zone." Claremont residents are invited to enjoy the air-conditioned facility, which will be opened until 9 p.m. The Hughes Center is located at 1700 Danbury Road.
