because it is close disclose this truck is by itself. didn't crash with anybody, i'm not sure if it's crash. i don't see any shocker because look can we get a better shot with the fire kind of going down under it. it doesn't even look like it hit anything, it's just sitting there it's not on the guardrail look at that if you or maybe a hit something underneath it right because it's not it's not looked on inside it didn't crash and everything yeah just checking the law the chp law that does not say that it crashed into any other vehicles that just says that it caught fire on that ramp and you can see it is involved in they're not letting anybody through right now so for people trying to get into san francisco from oakland. they are at a complete standstill. now we do have emergency crews on the way we don't know how long this is going to take but this is something that we're going to be tracking for a while there's a fire truck pulling up from the opposite direction looks like they may have come from san francisco or the bay bridge toll plaza folks can see the smoke from oakland from emeryville from san leandro this is going to be a big mess for people
5:43 am
trying to get through the maze chains or even into san francisco right now because they can't the whole rap is close and but unclear exactly what's burning but you say was hauling what cooking oil oil so it could be a mixture of gas that's burning and maybe cooking oil leaking that's. >>somehow catching fire. i mean this is going to be an intense situation for those fire crews when they get on scene to a situation like this we're not quite sure what's burning against that kind of confuse the situation as to what exactly they can put on the fire initially but i will figure that out exactly they can just throw water on some cooking oil you nice things much more intense and the smoke is just filling up the whole connector ramp spilling into the maze right now so i'm just recommending the folks stay away from the maze completely if not try not to use 5.80 stick with the minutes use 8.80 to get into san francisco, instead of 5.80 because as you can see. >>this whole connector that brings you up to the bay bridge toll plaza in flames and smoke right now one fire truck on scene and something like this this type of fire is not easy to put out as we just
5:44 am
said, it's loaded with cooking oil so for people like i know a lot of commuters come down, let's say 24 can they connect on the 5.80 and that feeds them into the bay bridge for those commuters though i guess the sits again we continue past that 5.80. >>get on an eye to eye and then connect on 8.80 like you're saying that on the road a bit and have that you on of the bay bridge absolutely because 5 80's, the main connector from 2 to 4. and that's where the backup now start so for people on 5.80 some folks are actually stuck. >>behind all this activity and traffic is at a standstill from the 24 split. so if you need to take 24 to stay on 24 merge on tonight, 80 you got to go through west oakland that gets you around the fire and into san francisco. so far our this wrap is the only thing that's close but i guess it depends on how long it takes to get this under control we may see other closures in place but for now it's only 5.80 west to 80 west that shut down because of this a tanker truck that's on fire. i can't even see it anymore as disappeared in smoke, james.

>>back it is 5.48 the breaking news story this morning. we have a major traffic problem in the east in fact let's get right to the traffic center. we've got a big rig on fire. and again remind everybody robin where this is so this is in the oakland may's james, this is the 80 west connector that brings you out of oakland into san francisco. >>this is leading up to the bay bridge toll plaza as you can see we have this tanker truck that caught fire now i do see some white smoke and that means that crews are getting a handle on this fire. the last time i checked it we just had flames shooting up on that route we do have several emergency crews fire on on scene they are working to get this out and under control, but this is a major problem and it's blocking the traffic
5:49 am
that's trying to get into san francisco. now the top of your screen is says 80 east at 5 80 that's the location of the caltrans camera it's not the location of the big rig that's on fire. meanwhile for those of you traveling through the maze are coming from 24 or 5.80. you want to stick with 9.80 as your alternate route because you can not get into san francisco right now on 80 west from the maze emerging from 5.80 or merging from 24 that whole connector that brings you into san francisco on a west is blocked. now you can get in from reveal you can also get in from the nimitz freeway but not from the oakland maze looking at this they are working on and they're doing a great job, we couldn't even see this big rig was at 5 i 10 minutes ago, james. it was involved we have smoke all over the onnector out there getting a good handle on it looks like they're finally making some progress you see firefighters there in the foreground between the big react guardrail. >>actually putting water on that section of the big rig
5:50 am
where we saw those huge flames crying out and that's typically where you would have liked the gas tanks. but we've also had issues with big rigs in the past were like their brakes will law come in fire and so that's also where you know a lot of the the least a good number the tires are wonder if maybe that's also a possibility i don't know, but it looks like we've got a great job of the least getting those major flames taken care of and did i mention that it was loaded with cooking oil right that makes it even worse, i'm just looking at the law did not come in as a crash so. >>no indication of any other vehicles being involved here that it hit some cars are the guard religious came in as a tanker truck on flyer fire. so yet may have been big brake problems other mechanical issues. but side they're doing a great job of getting this fire out and out of control but the track i think this is going to be a big headache for people trying to get into san francisco this morning because no one's getting through. >>i thought for a second maybe flame said the reason think it's less maybe via the light sort of shining in the smoke in the in the stream water i'm not entirely sure but it's
5:51 am
kind of hard to see they're going to make sure it's fully out move on to the next phase, the operation which will be to remove it, good news, it's still on its wheels. it's not like it's an overturned. so maybe we can get this thing clear to the next couple of hours and then i wondered what the condition of the wills are like how badly are they burned just hold off. >>after they have to load it onto a special heavy duty, tow trucks, you know when you have a a big rig. that's involved in any sort of incident you can't get a regular all tow truck out there to sell it off you need a special heavy duty tow truck to remove it and that takes longer it didn't happen member if they burn for too long and they actually ruin the roadway. yeah. they put that out real quick, so they may have to inspect that connector ramp that's a good point was engulfed in flames 10 minutes ago that fire was huge, so you may see some caltrans crews are inspectors come out and say hey let's take a look connector out before we start letting people into san francisco just to see if the structure say yeah it takes a while usually you know for to damage the roadway. but
5:52 am
it dan our floor. >>director and i were just reminiscing you remember i had to look it up it was back in 2007 when we had another tanker truck that was fully loaded want to talk about member the role last year and melted the superstructure above it that overpass when it was the right match like for much damage. the roadway that's the problem that still. >>and i want to take any bets about it's going to be a while right it and i'm looking at the law they're saying that they've called for heavy duty tow truck and that they're not allowing the tow truck up to the scene yet until they get this fire completely under control so that tow trucks on hold for now. >>okay at least they've got one on standby as again the great news, if you are just joining us not an 10 minutes ago we saw huge flames coming from the underside of this tanker and will take fire fighters out there on scene and done a great job of the least getting most of the tamp down and we'll hope that maybe they can get this thing cleared before this becomes an absolute nightmare for the morning commute. ok very good. so we'll keep you posted on that we're also waiting for the rain to start on who we are we are definitely looking
5:53 am

>>welcome back to the crime for morning news. we're following breaking news out of oakland maze where crews are dealing with a tanker truck loaded with cooking oil that caught fire at around 5 13 this morning. they have a handle on it looks like it's c% under control, but at one point it was engulfed in flames. here's some video from earlier when we first started talking about this you see the flames right under the truck next to the tire. this is in the oakland, may's the 5.80 west connector that brings you up to the bay bridge toll plaza the connector to 80 west. that ramp is completely close what rhee so happy to compare that video from earlier to what's happening right now. we know that emergency crews are on scene you can see them they came in from the opposite direction. they have the fire under control. i don't see any
5:57 am
flames anymore. but this is a big traffic mess for people trying to get into san francisco or either through the oakland maze 5.80 west is solid from 24 which can be used as an alternate you can take 24 to 9.80 connect to the nimitz freeway to get into san francisco or if you come in from emeryville you will be fine, you cannot come in from oakland on 5.80 west to get to the bay bridge toll plaza because we have all lanes blocked. we don't know how long it's going to take to completely clear but i'm sure i'll be tracking this for quite some time so we'll time out your alternate routes will talk about what's best for you to get around this. we'll have another check coming up in a bit stay with us.
