BRISBANE, Calif. (KTVU) - A fire broke out Tuesday morning at Recology in Brisbane, according to the company spokesman.
Robert Reed said the fire was reported just before 2 a.m. in a metal building that contains construction debris, which included wood, sheetrock and metal. Recology crews removed loads with a tractor, and fire crews put water on the debris as they removed it.
That's what is causing the smoke to be visible from the southern end of San Francisco and causing traffic problems near the Candlestick exit.
There were no reported injuries from the Recology facility at 501 Tunnel Ave., Reed said.
San Francisco fire officials are warning residents to keep doors and windows closed to limit exposure to smoke.
