A brush fire near Crockett that is causing traffic to back up on Interstate Highway 80 has been contained at around 40 acres, according to a Crockett-Carquinez Fire Department official.

The fire, reported around 3:45 p.m., initially caused the closure of the right lane on westbound I-80 near the Cummings Skyway offramp and poor visibility in the area, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The lane has since reopened but the offramp remains closed, according to the CHP.
