A vegetation fire Sunday briefly threatened a Pacific Gas & Electric Co. substation near Elkhorn and Bethel avenues near Kingsburg, Fresno County fire officials said.
Five fire engines responded to the eight-acre fire because the fire was mistakenly reported as a house fire shortly after 4 p.m., fire officials said. No injuries were reported.
Firefighters were still at the scene as of 8:30 p.m. to eliminate hotspots. The cause of the fire is undetermined.
