Fire danger keeps Alum Rock Park closed
SAN JOSE, CA -- Extreme fire danger has forced the city of San Jose to close Alum Rock Park today, the third consecutive day that the park is out of operation.
No public access or activities of any kind will be allowed in the park during the closure.
Daily weather readings within the park and the availability of fire personnel -- from both Cal Fire and local fire agencies -- determine the conditions for park use.
Readings taken Wednesday at 1:52 p.m. showed a temperature of 98 degrees, winds of 5 mph and a relative humidity of 17 percent.
Park goers may obtain an updated park status by calling (408) 259-5477.
