The Clark County Department of Air Quality (DAQ) issued an air advisory for August 17 through August 19 for potentially elevated levels of ozone and smoke due to the Blue cut wildfire in California. 
Air Quality officials say the smoke is made of small dust particles and other pollutants that can aggravate respiratory diseases and contribute to ground-level ozone formation.
Individuals with respiratory problems, cardiac disease, young children, and senior citizens are most sensitive to elevated levels of ozone and fine particles.
