A fire outside a chemical plant in southwestern Fresno County was contained quickly Monday afternoon, Fresno County Fire Protection District officials said.
The fire was reported at 11:48 a.m at Wilbur-Ellis Co., a fertilizer supplier.
The fire was in two Seatrain containers and didn’t spread, said Capt. David Martin of Fresno County Fire Protection District and Cal Fire.
The containers were engulfed when firefighters arrived, Martin said.
Employees were able to “shelter in place,” he said, and no injuries were reported.
The fire was contained at 12:24 p.m., Martin said.
It was unknown early Monday afternoon what was in the containers. Mop-up was expected to take much of the afternoon, Martin said.
The plant is south of San Joaquin and about three miles north of Helm at 12550 Colorado Road.
