June 27, 2015 (San Diego’s East County) – The inside of your car heats up rapidly, even when it’s not scorching hot outside.  In just ten minutes on  70 degree day, the car’s interior can reach 104 degrees—and with 95 degree heat outside, your car’s interior can hit 129 degrees in that same short time.  Never leave your pet, child or any person alone in a car on a warm day, even for a few minutes.
