Officials said about 300 feet of shoreline crumbled, which pushed the pier into the water around 4:15 p.m. Friday.

Oakland Fire spokesman Sean Laffan told KPIX that the containers had building materials but contained no hazardous materials.

The pier is close to Fifth Avenue and Embarcadero, a few miles from Jack London Square. It was set to be demolished in June to make way for a huge waterfront development.
