 Shafter, CA

Just before 5:00 PM this evening, the Kern County Fire Department received a call from a passerby who could see black smoke to the rear of a paper product manufacturing facility in the 5900 block of Zerker Road. Crews from Shafter, McFarland, and North Bakersfield responded to the incident and made entry into the facility. The fire was burning large bails of recycled cardboard to the rear of the facility. KCFD crews deployed hose lines and utilized mounted deck guns on top of the apparatus to fight the fire. Employees from the facility assisted by removing unburned bails of cardboard with forklifts. The fire was ruled as accidental. It started from equipment within the facility that is used to manufacture paper products.
