A wildfire that's been burning for a month in California is now affecting the Las Vegas Valley.

The Zaca fire has destroyed more than 63,000 acres since it started on July 4th. The fire, burning near Buellton, is nearly 70-percent contained but full containment isn't expected until September.

Smoke from that fire is now being blown into the valley. That smoke has completely enveloped the Spring Mountains.

On the west side of the Mountains it's even worse. Eyewitness News traveled to Pahrump Monday where the smell of smoke permeated the air.

I can't see the mountains, it's getting worse!
