Stockton Fire says the fire was first reported just after 5 a.m. About 1,000 tomato crates have caught fire, firefighters say.

Crews are now working on protecting structures in the area.

The smokestack from the fire can be seen for miles around.

Exactly what started the fire is unclear at this point.

The San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District has issued a health caution over poor air quality due to the massive fire.
