The fire started just after noon at a dock along 1200 block of Bayshore Rd.
Most of the longshoremen working at the dock have been evacuated, officials said.
“Fire at Port of Benicia, a dock ramp is fully engulfed,” tweeted Cornell Barnard who is at the scene.
Officials say there is no shelter-in-place order but could change depending on the wind direction, but in a tweet, Benicia fire department says, “wind conditions are favorable…there continues to be no threat to the public.”
Benicia police are asking motorists to avoid the area due to “heavy police and fire presence.”
At 4:30 p.m. press conference, an official said no injuries have been reported.
We continue to monitor air and wind conditions. Wind conditions are favorable. The fire response is active and continuous. At this time, no structures have been burned. There continues to be no threat to the public.
