Rural fire north of town April 23 burns equipment

The afternoon of April 23, a commercial fire on Alta Avenue and South Avenues just outside of Reedley could be seen for miles as a large plume of black smoke filled the air. The fire was on the property of the Sun Pacific Farming Company. Tree stakes, pallets and fruit bins were burning, but no structures were threatened. Several fire crews, including Reedley Fire and Fresno County Fire, were on scene to help extinguish the flames. 

Flames shot up from the area around the Sun Pacific Farming Company as an orchard is pictured in the foreground.
