Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- 1,000 firefighters are out on the lines battling a fast-moving wildfire outside Banning, California.
More than 1,500 people were ordered out of their homes as a precaution.
The fire started on Wednesday, but it's already grown to more than 10,000 acres, thanks to high winds and dry conditions.
10 structures, including several homes, have been lost to the flames and three people have been injured.
Because of smoke from the fire, an air quality advisory went into effect on Friday in Clark County and will stay in effect through Sunday.
Local health officials said it could have an impact on anyone with asthma or bronchitis, and it might be best for children and the elderly to stay inside.
In general, they said people should limit their time outdoors, keep windows closed and change air filters inside if needed.
