Monclair fire

Battalion Chief Eric Noreen of Rancho Cucamonga Fire Department surveys the outer perimeter of a large industrial fire on Monday in Montclair. The fire began at an industrial recycling center at 4761 State Street and quickly spread to adjacent properties including an apartment building and a scrap metal storage yard. Billowing clouds of black smoke could be seen throughout Claremont and fire crews responded from as far away as Redlands. COURIER photo/Steven Felschundneff
