Big-rig-fire blocks Richmond-San Rafael Bridge traffic
RICHMOND SAN RAFAEL BRIDGE -- Lanes of the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge were shut down shut down Thursday morning while crews work to clean up after a big-rig fire and remove the burned truck from the roadway, a California Highway Patrol officer said.
The fire was reported shortly after 10 a.m. on the bridge at the Marin-Contra Costa county line, according to the CHP.
Both eastbound lanes were initially blocked as crews responded, and one lane reopened around 10:30 a.m.
The fire, which is now out, resulted in a diesel spill, CHP Officer Marc Johnston said. It is unknown how much spilled.
All lanes were reopened by 2 p.m.
