Massive fire at Santa Clara Caraustar facility

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (From news reports) -- An early-morning massive fire at a Caraustar paper yard in Santa Clara Tuesday (2 Jan) was visible from near Mineta San Jose International Airport.

An employee for Silicon Valley Power said that four power poles were on fire prompting the agency to shut off power on the street.

The fire started from a bale of burning cardboard outside the site on the yard located in the 500 block of Matthew Street. All employees were evacuated from the facility. The fire was restricted to the yard.
