farther up let me show you on the maps, this area, the maze and that construction coming through berkeley out of richmond. it's eastbound 80 at carlson boulevard, the on and off ramps are closed because of an overturned sounds like a tanker, not necessarily a fuel tanker. some sort of liquid leak. the on and off ramps are closed. we're not sure when they will reopen. there is a fuel leak. the freeway is open. we're tracking this for the morning commute. >> we'll check back with you. san francisco firefighters say initial reports indicate fireworks are to blame for a brush fire on yerba buena island. it was reported last night in a very remote area on the western side of the island south of the bay bridge. a large plume of smoke and flames could be seen by drivers. it shut down eastbound lanes on the lower deck causing major
