The Clark County Department of Air Quality (DAQ) issued an advisory for smoke and ground-level ozone due to wildfires burning in Southern California that may periodically impact Clark County. The advisory is in effect today through Friday, June 26.
Air Quality officials say the smoke from the Lake wildfire burning in the San Bernardino National Forest is drifting into the local area. Smoke is made of small dust particles and other pollutants that can aggravate respiratory diseases. At this time, unhealthy levels of air pollution are not occurring. Air Quality officials will continue to monitor conditions and will post an alert on the forecast page of the DAQ website if unhealthy levels actually occur.
