Cooling centers rescue residents from killer heat

The Los Angeles County Fire Department has put out a heat alert for Altadena and Pasadena. Temperatures hit 96°F today, and are expected to climb into the triple digits by Friday. Here are the cooling centers near you.

Fire officials stressed that children and the elderly are most at risk. Outdoor workers should also drink water as often as possible. Children and pets should never be left in hot cars.
