Merced fire near wastewater treatment plant

FRESNO, Calif.

It has burned about 100 acres so far.

But the fire chief told Action News his crews are dealing with a breakout spot that could cause the fire to double in size if they can't stop it.

At this point, no structures are threatened, and the wind continues to blow away from the waste water facility.

The fire is about 80 percent contained, but again, firefighters are concerned about a break-out spot that could cause more problems.
