It started around 4:15 Wednesday afternoon just east of the Cal Fire Millerton station on Friant Road.

At one point, the flames threatened five homes, as well as a state parks storage facility that houses potentially hazardous materials as well as fuel.

Because of the unusually dry conditions Cal Fire sent in extra crews to get a handle on the blaze.

Luckily, no homes were destroyed and no one was injured.

The cause is still under investigation.
