LAS VEGAS – Mount Charleston Is Experiencing a Power Outage as Firefighters Work to Contain a Wildfire
Kyle Canyon and Angel Peak are having a Public Safety Outage Management event because of putting out fires.
NV Energy said the power outage began at 5:40 p.m. on Tuesday and should last until 12 p.m. on Wednesday.
NV Energy’s website says that the planned outage is to help fight wildfires.
