All lanes of traffic on the westbound side of the San Francisco‘s Bay Bridge have been shut down due to a vehicle fire.

According to the CHP, a truck caught fire and is completely engulfed. BART advises people to take their trains as an alternative route.

A propane-fueled utility truck was on fire just east of Fremont St. At least two explosions were witnessed as a result of the burning propane tanks, according to CBS.

Crews were delayed in responding to the explosive flames that began around 8:27 a.m. Thursday.

It happened on the bridge’s westbound Interstate 80, San Francisco-bound side.
