SAN JOSE, Callif. -- Increased fire danger and extreme temperatures have officials closing all public access to Alum Rock Park Sunday, a park ranger confirmed today.
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.
