People were being asked to be wary of heat exhaustion and the potential fire danger caused by hot weather across Southern California on Wednesday.

Prolonged exposure to the elements could lead to fatigue, faintness, headaches, rapid heartbeat, muscle cramps and increased thirst, according to the City of Glendale Community Services and Parks Department.
