    A six-acre blaze at a Fontana industrial site continued to smolder on Sunday, and firefighters remained on the scene.

    The five-alarm inferno in the 14,000 block of Clover Ave. drew nearly 200 firefighters at its height Saturday night.

    One firefighter was treated for heat-related injuries, San Bernardino County Fire officials said.

    Firefighters learned of the blaze shortly after 6 p.m. on Saturday.

    It soon tore through the plant, where wood pallets stacked two and three stories high acted like kindling for the crackling flames.
