SAN FRANCISCO —
A fire that erupted in the brush and debris alongside Highway 101 in San Francisco shut down southbound traffic for about an hour early Wednesday before it was extinguished, authorities said.
San Francisco Fire Capt. Jonathan Low said his agency got a call about 1:30 a.m. reporting the roadside fire.
Two engines were quickly dispatched to the scene and were confronted with a raging fire in the brush, wood and debris along the roadside near the Cesar Chavez exit.
“There are no structures in the area -- just wood and some ivy,” Low said.
A fire investigator was called to the scene to determine the cause and occupants of a nearby homeless encampment were questioned.
All southbound lanes were reopened at around 2:30 a.m.
