Central Valley: Eight agencies fight almond hull fire at Patterson dairy

According to the Mountain View Fire Department, the fire broke out around 11 a.m. Dampened by the recent rainfall, the almond hulls got hot and started smouldering.

Firefighters called for other agencies to bring water tenders to the site, since there is no piped supply to the area.

The fire spread to two other piles before it was extinguished about 1 p.m., but no buildings were damaged or injuries reported.
