Arriving crews reported seeing smoke coming from a recycling area. Further investigation led firefighters to a cardboard collection area that had ignited in nearly 2 tons of combustible material.

A front-loading tractor vehicle was used to remove and redistribute burning debris while firefighters from Cal Fire, Napa County, and American Canyon fire departments doused the flames with fire hoses.
