Black plumes of smoke could be seen in the horizon as at least three palm trees at S. Farrell Drive and Ramon Road were engulfed in flames.

Residents of the Mesquite Country Club called to report the fire just before 6 Thursday evening.

A wind advisory is in effect for the Coachella Valley from 11 a.m. Thursday until 1 a.m. Friday; strong winds may pick up again Friday afternoon.
