Cal Fire is on the scene of a grass fire burning 1,500 to 2,000 acres at Highway 33 and Lost Hills Road in Coalinga that is threatening about 40 structures, Fresno County fire spokesman Jeremiah Wittwer said.

The first report came in around 3:42 p.m. stating 4 to 5 acres were on fire, said Capt. Tim Gehret. The Jayne fire has since grown due to 15 to 20 mph winds, he said.
