A brush fire prompted the California Highway Patrol to shut down lanes on state Highway 4 in Martinez Wednesday afternoon, a CHP officer said.
The fire was reported on the right shoulder of eastbound Highway 4 just west of Alhambra Way at 2:51 p.m.
Eastbound traffic was blocked, and only one lane was open in the westbound direction, CHP Officer Scott Cakebread said. Both lanes reopened around 3:45 p.m.
Initial reports indicated that smoke was billowing across the highway.
