SALT LAKE CITY -- Temperatures are reaching triple digits in much of Utah and across the U.S.

Experts say it's important to remember not to leave people or pets in your vehicle.

To demonstrate how dangerous it can be, Fox 13 News set up a tray of cheese, peanut M&Ms, Crayons, Hershey's Kisses and a microwave pizza and  left it inside a truck which was parked in direct sunlight for two hours.
