A warning about dangerous fire conditions in the East Bay has been extended until Sunday morning, National Weather Service officials said this evening.

The warning called a Red Flag Warning has been extended for the East Bay hills until 8 a.m.

A Red Flag Warning is also in effect for the North Bay hills until 8 a.m.
