The Clark County Department of Air Quality issued an advisory for today and Thursday for potentially elevated levels of ozone and smoke due to multiple wildfires burning in Southern California.
There is a haze over the Pahrump Valley, so residents should take the same precautions neighboring Clark County is, as conditions are similar.
Officials say smoke is made of small dust particles and other pollutants that can aggravate respiratory diseases and contribute to ground-level ozone formation.
People who may be most sensitive to elevated levels of ozone and fine particles include individuals with respiratory problems, cardiac disease, young children or senior citizens.
