Fire in Fresno County Closes Main Roads

A 200-acre fire is burning in eastern Fresno County on the side of Highway 168 near Shaver Lake.

Cooler nightime temperatures and light winds have allowed firefighters to contain about 20 percent of the blaze. All day air tankers and five helicopters battled the blaze.

Fire officials say there is potential for threatened structures if the wind picks up, but no homes have been evacuated.

Officials do not yet know what caused the blaze.
