The 3-alarm fire happened near Clovis and McKinley in East Fresno just a few hundred feet from "Fresno Yosemite International Airport".

It took 70 firefighters about an hour to get the fire under control, but they were at the warehouse for hours putting out hot spots.

Investigators are still trying to figure out what caused the fire. The fire was so big firefighters from Fresno, Clovis, and the Air Guard helped fight the flames.
