Investigation is underway of a fire that breaks out at the Auto Club Famoso Raceway

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - A fire breaks out at Famoso Raceway, causing thousands of dollars in damage after multiple buildings are caught in the blaze. 

A call was received around 3:30 a.m. When fire crews arrived on scene, they found the starter tower, including the announcement booth engulfed in flames. 

Crews were able to use water from the canal near Highway 99 to get a knock down of the fire just before 4:00 a.m. 

Firefighters say although it wasn't the case this time, that finding water sources can be an issue in rural areas. The cause of the fire is still under investigation and crews are expecting to be on scene for another couple of hours.
