A shelter-in-place order caused by a sulfur fire at Stanislaus Farm Supply in Ceres has been lifted, officials said. Modesto Fire Department spokesman Darin Jesberg said the fire was contained to the building where it started. Crews will stay overnight to ensure the product inside the building stays fresh. Health concerns related to the smoke led to the shelter-in-place order for people within a 1-mile radius as a precaution on potentially hazardous air quality. Modesto police said a large quantity of fertilizer-grade sulfur was smoldering inside a 40,000 square-foot concrete warehouse. Fire crews worked with site personnel to isolate and contain the smoldering product. The Office of Emergency Services said when it was first reported. “You are requested to shelter in place. Stay indoors, close windows and turn off the HVAC. Update to follow as conditions change.” Modesto Police said there was no immediate threat to structures or life. About 50 staff were handling the incident, police said. They involved Modesto and Stanislaus Consolidated Fire Crews, Ceres Police, Ceres Public Works, Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department, Department of Environmental Resources, and the Stanislaus Regional Fire Investigation Unit, Modesto police said.
