LAS VEGAS (AP) - Sizzling heat continues to bake southern Nevada, where an excessive heat warning remains in effect through 11 p.m.

Temperatures in the Las Vegas area are expected to reach or surpass 112 degrees Thursday, continuing a heat wave that has hovered over much of the West for the past week.

Since Friday, emergency personnel around the Las Vegas Valley have responded to 278 emergency 911 calls involving heat-related incidents.

Clark County officials say three cooling stations will open today to help the homeless and others escape the searing heat and stay hydrated.

People can cool down at Black Mountain Recreation Center in Henderson; the municipal pool on East Bonanza Road and the Islamic Society of Nevada on East Desert Inn Road.

Those locations are in addition to regular inclement weather shelters.
