Last night 7/25 at approximately 2056 hours E33 and E31 were dispatched to the report of cardboard on fire behind the Walmart Neighborhood Market. When crews arrived on scene they found a large stack of bailed cardboard on fire. Crews attacked the fire and patrolled the surrounding neighborhoods due to the large amount of ember cast. City crews were called in with large equipment to break apart the bails. Crews remained on scene performing an extensive overhaul of the fire. Photo credit: Patrick Shansoff #Turlock #TurlockFire
