Valley's air quality 'moderate' due to smoke from wildfires

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) -- Air quality in the Las Vegas valley is currently in the "moderate" range due to smoke drifting in from wildfires in Arizona, including:

  • The Slate Fire, northwest of Flagstaff, which has burned 11,155 acres
  • The Cornville fire, northeast of Prescott, which has burned 1,239 acres

Updates from Nevada wildfires earlier today indicate the Sandy Valley Fire on Mount Potosi is 94% contained, and the Cottonwood Valley Fire is 40% contained.

Those fires are also playing a role in the valley's air quality.

Air quality is expected to be moderate again on Thursday.
