Tuff Stuff fire under control in Tulare County

Fire crews are still on the scene of a Tulare County plastic plant fire in Terra Bella.

The fire has been burning for more than five hours at the Tuff Stuff plant. Firefighters say they have the fire under control.

At one point flames could be seen as far as 15 miles away. It was more difficult to battle this fire because plastic was burning. Fortunately, the smoke went straight up into the air and did not drift.

Crews will be on site overnight to make sure the fire does not re-ignite.
