Details are sketchy, but Twitter users are starting to buzz about a reported fire on the Bay Bridge. Early local media accounts point to an oil tanker that may have “brushed up” against one of the bridge towers. The Coast Guard is apparently responding to the incident.
Twitchy will monitor and update with any new developments.
Update: This is good news.
Coast Guard reports a tanker has hit the SF-Oakland Bay Bridge. No reports of leaking oil, tanker sitting at anchor now.—

Update: Looks like the Bay Bridge is OK, too:
