MARICOPA - Kern County firefighters responded to piles of almond shells on fire Tuesday morning.
Kern County Fire officials said the fire broke out just after 5 a.m. at a facility on Old River Road, just north of Copus Road.
The fire was out and just smoldering at about 6 a.m.
Each pile of almond hulls was about 150 feet long and 30 feet high.
The Kern County Fire Department says the owner of the property had heavy equipment on scene and crews helped the owner separate the piles that were burning away from the rest of the piles.
Crews knocked down flames, but say the piles will continue to smolder and smoke for some time and they will continue to check with the owner and the piles throughout the day.
