Footage of Wildfire Smoke Taking Over Vegas Valley

By Jasmine Hollows

The Dixie Fire in California, burning more than 436,000 acres, is the second largest wildfire in California history, says the New York Times. Ignited by scorching heat and dry weather, the Dixie Fire began on July 13 and has blazed parts of Butte and Plumas counties, reported The Washington Post. The smoke from our neighboring state spills into the Las Vegas Valley, which has significantly lowered the air quality. Blanketed over the city, the Strip skyline disappears in a colossal cloud of smoke. Here are some photos and video footage of Las Vegas capturing the hazy atmosphere.
