Clark County smoke advisory

An air quality and smoke advisory has been issued by Clark County from Saturday through Tuesday for elevated levels of smoke related to local fireworks through the Independence Day holiday weekend.

These pollutants can also aggravate respiratory diseases such as bronchitis and asthma or heart disease.

Under moderate or worse air quality conditions, it may be best for children, older adults and people with respiratory and heart disease to stay indoors.
