Firefighters are battling a fire at a dairy farm in Chino that might burn for days.
The fire began at around 8 p.m. near the intersection of Pine Avenue and West Preserve Loop, where smoke billowed above the farm and its cows. The fire could take an estimated couple of hours to several days to be extinguish, said Chief David Williams, of the Chino Valley Fire Department.
Piles of hay at the farm fueled the fire that prompted residents to go outside and look at the flames.
