Glendora Police and Los Angeles County fire fighters responded to what was described as a rubbish fire in a maintenance yard Thursday afternoon.
The fire reportedly cause a large plume, which was a cause for concern among some residents, according to scanner reports. Police received many calls about the smoke.
The smoke billowed from a Caltrans maintenance yard a little after 2 p.m. in the 100 block of North Valencia Street. One officer was on scene watching the fire, which produced much smoke, but not many flames, said Lieutenant Rob Lamborghini.
"It was a very innocuous, small little fire that really just burned trash and didn't burn anything of consequence," Lamborghini said.
The fire was to the rear of the maintenance yard, according to an official at fire station 151 in Glendora.
The cause of the fire was not immediately divulged. Fire fighters were reportedly on scene for an hour after the fire performing clean up duties.
