    The fire was spreading moderately and prompted the CHP to issue a Sig-alert for all westbound lanes of I-580 being blocked at Greenville Road.

    The blaze had the potential to burn about 20 acres, fire officials said.

    The Alameda County Fire Department, Livermore-Pleasanton Fire Department and Cal Fire responded to the scene.
