UPDATE: 9:07 a.m. Tuesday, May 12 - Firefighters received a call around 6 p.m. Monday with reports of smoke and trees on fire off of Liberty Road and Highway 99 in Gridley.

It took firefighters about an hour to put out the flames.

“It was very hard to control initially, because of the tire fire but once we got enough resources here we were able to control that fire,” Chief John Gaddie said.
