BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — A fire in East Bakersfield on Monday sent a large plume of black smoke into the air and led authorities to close an intersection.
The California Highway Patrol shut the intersection of Flower and Gage streets around 3:30 p.m. as fire crews rushed to the blaze. The smoke was no longer visible a short time later.
The cause of the fire is unknown. The investigation is ongoing.
