LAS VEGAS (AP) — Southern Nevada is spending Labor Day weekend under an air quality advisory thanks to wildfire smoke from California.

The Clark County Department of Air Quality on Sunday issued the warning for potentially elevated levels of ozone and smoke through Monday.

Several wildfires burning in central and southern California triggered the advisory, although officials said unhealthy levels of pollution aren’t currently occurring in the Las Vegas area.

Young children, the elderly and those with respiratory problems or cardiac disease may become sensitive to any rising ozone or smoke levels.
