Extreme fire conditions prompt Sunday closure of Alum Rock Park

SAN JOSE, Callif.

The emergency closure was activated to reduce or eliminate the potential for fire-related emergencies in Alum Rock Park, according to Alum Rock Park Ranger Duncan Skinner.

Temperatures are believed to reach 100 degrees with relative humidity at 16 percent and a wind speed off anywhere from 6 - 12 mph, according to Skinner.

The park is always closed on Mondays, so the closure will be in effect for two days.
