    Two people are dead after a fiery San Ramon interstate crash where California highway workers had blocked lanes.
    There are no injuries to California Department of Transportation workers.

    The San Francisco Chronicle ( ) says Caltrans set up cones leaving only the fast lane open on southbound Interstate 780 early Sunday when two vehicles collided.
    The California Highway Patrol says a Nissan Maxima rear-ended a BMW, causing both vehicles to spin out of control and cross into the Caltrans work zone.
    The Nissan hit a forklift and burst into flames, trapping the driver. The BMW hit a Caltrans pickup truck, killing a passenger and critically injuring the driver.
