6-Alarm Fire Hits Calif. Plastic Container Plant

FAIRFIELD, Calif. -- A massive fire burned thousands of plastic containers and chemicals at an industrial complex in Fairfield, Tuesday afternoon. The six-alarm fire ignited just after 1 p.m. and sent black smoke billowing into the air that could be seen from downtown Sacramento. Internal fire temperatures reached 1200 degrees, enough to burn through a chain link fence, firefighters told KCRA. The fire was contained just after 4 p.m., the Fairfield Fire Marshal said.
