DUBLIN--A brush fire burned near westbound Interstate 580 this morning, significantly slowing traffic for the morning commute, fire officials said.
The blaze scorched approximately 2 acres off Dublin Boulevard near Brigadoon Way, and was contained as of 9:30 a.m., Alameda County Fire spokeswoman Aisha Knowles said. Fire crews are currently in the cleanup stage.
The roadway remains congested despite all lanes being open, California Highway Patrol officer Steve Creel said, with traffic likely to crawl as long as the cleanup creates a visual distraction.
