LAS VEGAS (KSNV NEWS3LV) -- An excessive heat warning will continue in Las Vegas through the end of the week.
The warning will continue until Friday, June 23 at 11 p.m. Forecast highs are expected to be between 113-117 degrees.
Children and the elderly should stay indoors during peak hours, and a new bill has been passed that says that a person could face a $1,000 fine or 6 months in jail if convicted of leaving a pet in a hot, locked car.
“Senate Bill 409 passed in the last legislative session raised the penalty for leaving a pet in a hot locked car to the same level as leaving a child in the car,” says Cathy Brooks, owner of The Hydrant Club.
Dog owners are also warned to keep their pets off hot sidewalks and pavement, as it can burn their feet.
