Today (Tuesday afternoon, Jun 8) everyone was talking about the huge plume of smoke just southeast of the campus of Fresno Pacific University. Many had heard the sirens, but the sight was what really caught everyone's attention. The fire, which must have started around 3:30 pm, appeared to be coming from an open field near Peach, between Butler and Church. Traffic was also being diverted in the area, causing some congestion around the university and Butler Church. By 4:30, the fire appeared to be under control and the sky was clearning.
