Smoke from a massive Southern California wildfire has made its way into the Las Vegas valley.
But 13 First Alert Weather says it shouldn't be too much of a health concern since most of the smoke is in the upper levels of the atmosphere. Those with respiratory concerns should however limit exposure outside. Most of the smoke should start to dissipate later Sunday into early this week.

The Sand Fire has burned 35 square miles or about 22,000 acres in Santa Clarita, north of Los Angeles and about four hours from Las Vegas. Almost 20 homes have been lost and thousands more are threatened.
