A blazing fire in the East Bay scorched more than 100 acres on the Altamont Pass between Livermore and Tracy, fire officials said Saturday.
Three fires off West Bound 580 and Grand Line Road converged to create the tumultuous blaze. Drivers reported having no visibility.
Anyone going to Livermore over 205, don't. Huge fire, no visibility, police blockade and a complete standstill. Stay safe my friends.
