Inland East Bay parks closed because of fire danger

The East Bay Regional Park District closed its park Tuesday because of extreme heat and fire danger, which they expect will remain off-limits to the public until Friday. 

The closure is because the National Weather Service issued a Red Flag Warning, which means that dry and windy conditions could lead to extreme fire weather risks.

While the parks are closed, the district said swim facilities and Shoreline Regional Parks will remain open.
