The air traffic control tower at Fresno-Yosemite International Airport was evacuated on Friday because of a fire.
A “small fire” occurred as workers were involved in a plumbing job. There was a leak into a power strip that caused it to smoke, said Vikkie Calderon, airport spokeswoman
The fire was put out with a fire extinguisher by the workers, according to Fresno Fire Department scanner reports.
The fire was reported at the control tower, 5055 E. Anderson Ave. about 12:45 p.m.
