The fire broke out Monday night and shut down several major roadways including a stretch of Highway 41 near Kettleman City.
The extremely wind-driven fire all started as a grass fire that exploded to 3,000 acres.
Firefighters build hand lines, hosed the vegetation along the highway and created fire breaks with dozer operations.
