The fire was burning in the vicinity of the North Flynn Road exit off Interstate 580, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The agency issued a Sig Alert for severe traffic after shutting down all but the far left two lanes in the five-lane eastbound direction about 8:15 a.m. They later opened the middle lane, but the other two were expected to stay shut until at least 12:30 p.m., according to the CHP.

It was unclear how fast the fire was moving or how many acres had burned. Fire officials from the Alameda County Fire Department and Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department did not immediately return calls for information.
