  • Introduction to Video Content
  • The York Fire, a wildfire burning in the Mojave National Preserves, has now crossed over into Nevada, causing smoky skies in the Las Vegas Valley. Thousands of acres of land are burning with no containment yet. More than 200 firefighters are working to battle the fire, but strong winds are posing significant challenges. The fire started on Friday near the New York mountains in the northeastern part of San Bernardino County and has been fueled by constant and unpredictable wind patterns. The fire has now crossed into Nevada, and the National Park Service is working closely with Clark County Fire and other agencies to contain it. The impact of the fire has led to the closure of Nevada State Route 164, which connects US 95 in Nevada to Interstate 15 in California. So far, there have been no reports of deaths or displacements.
  • Subtitles section
  • Breaking news, a wildfire burning and the Mojave National Preserves has crossed over into Nevada.
  • Thousands of acres of land burning and no containment.
  • Hello everyone.
  • Thank you so much for joining us at 5. I'm Ozzie Mora.
  • More than 200 firefighters are battling the York Fire.
  • Strong winds posing significant challenges for crews.
  • Tonight we have team coverage of the fire.
  • Weather anchor Mary Jane Belieza is standing by on how this fire is impacting our air quality.
  • But first let's send it to 8News Now reporter Madison Kimbrough who has the latest on the efforts to put out the flames.
  • Madison.
  • Ozzie, the York Fire currently spans about 70 acres.
  • It's 0% contained.
  • You may have noticed the foggy skies we've been experiencing here in Vegas as well as smoke in the air.
  • Now, this fire which started around noon on Friday was initially seen by Park Service employees near the New York mountains in the northeastern part of the San Bernardino County.
  • And now the constant and unpredictable wind patterns as described by the National Park Service is creating significant challenges for fire crews.
  • And the York Fire has crossed over to Nevada lines like you mentioned.
  • So the National Park Service is working closely with Clark County Fire and more help is on the way.
  • We have 219.
  • We will be getting in more personnel.
  • That 219 is a combined effort between the Park Service, we have Bureau of Land Management, San Bernardino County.
  • Fire protection has been there with us since day one fighting.
  • And because of the impact it's having here locally, Nevada State Route 164 is closed which connects US 95 in Nevada to Interstate 15 in California.
  • That's just south of Prim.
  • So if you're headed that way, take precaution.
  • No deaths or displacements have been reported.
  • But Stephanie told me they're working with the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Office for immediate updates.
  • Keep it here on 8 News now for the latest details.
  • Sending it back to you.
  • Madison, thank you for that update.
  • I wanted to show you guys a quick look at where the York Fire is actually burning.
  • Again, we mentioned that it did start in the Mojave National Preserve.
  • That's about less than 90 miles away from the Las Vegas Valley area.
  • That's about an hour and a half of a drive.
  • Now most of this continues to burn and has crossed into Nevada, that is state lines.
  • We do know that weather has a big factor on fire behavior.
  • We're not only looking at the heat and the winds which has exacerbated the fire here, but we're also taking a look too at thunderstorms that continue to form in and around this area for San Bernardino County.
  • That includes thundercells pretty much to the northeast of where this fire is.
  • With the smoke and the haze pushing into our area, we continue to see anywhere from moderate to unhealthy air quality at this time.
  • That means those who have sensitive lungs, have allergies or even asthma should limit time outdoors.
  • Again, this smoke and haze continues to impact air quality up until Monday, so please keep the forecast in mind, especially if you have outdoor plans or if you have to work outside.
  • Air quality will pretty much keep in the moderate range with the winds.
  • Again, this does play a factor in how much smoke and haze is spread into the region.
