About 10 minutes later, the CHP reported that the fire was out, but eastbound traffic lanes remained blocked due to first responders at the scene.

Fire officials said Fire Boat 3 extinguished a small debris fire under the eastbound span a quarter mile west of Yerba Buena Island. The fire’s cause remains under investigation.

CHP officials said a medical emergency and collision on the eastbound Treasure Island exit was also blocking traffic.
