A smoky, 3-alarm fire is burning in Fairfield near Travis Air Force Base.

The fire began around 1:15 p.m. at Macro Plastics on Huntington Drive.

The fire is putting off a large amount of black smoke that can be seen for miles and a neighboring business reports that flames are shooting 50 feet into the air.

The fire is located in an industrial area so there is not shelter in place in effect, but people nearby are advised to stay inside.
