While there have been no official warnings issued for increased fire danger due to the heat, continuing problems with brush fires in the greater Bay Area including the nearly contained Crews Fire in Gilroy and an overnight blaze at the Altamont Pass that shut down I-580 for several hours indicate that fire crews will need to be at the ready in those areas experiencing higher temps.
