A wildfire that started early this morning continues to burn at Desert Wetlands Park near Sam Boyd Stadium in the eastern part of the Las Vegas Valley.
Clark County Fire Department spokesman Scott Allison said the fire is not contained, but no homes or businesses are threatened at this time. He said as many as five acres have burned.
Allison said there are no reports of injuries.
He added the Bureau of Land Management will remain on scene for the next 24 hours to monitor the blaze and wind gusts that could spread the flames.
The hot weather, winds and dry conditions are a cause for concern, he said.
"Today is a red-flag day with the high winds," Allison said.
Firefighters got the call at 3:45 a.m. The cause of the fire is unknown.
