A burning vehicle on the San Francisco approach of the Bay Bridge caused a significant traffic backup for commuters Monday morning.
The car in flames, which appeared to be an early 1980s Lincoln, was sitting on the right side of the bridge, and caught fire sometime around 7:40 a.m., as KPIX reports. Commuter Dan Jackson caught the image below from what appeared to be a bus window.

The car was sitting just ahead of the Fremont exit of the bridge, and CBS SF had some footage from the air.
Flames were quickly extinguished, as KPIX reports, but crews remained on the scene doing cleanup.
As of 8:30 a.m., the two right-hand lanes of the bridge remained blocked, and traffic was still bad, according to SFGate.
