Short public service announcement this Friday afternoon: The heavy smoke in the air in Oakland and throughout much of the East Bay is actually coming from Suisun City, where officials say an eight-alarm fire is burning. There is apparently some sort of grass fire that has impacted a structure as well.

Due to high winds, smoke and ash has drifting throughout Berkeley and Oakland, according to an alert from Oakland city officials. The Oakland Fire Department reported this afternoon that it has additional units patrolling the Oakland Hill area, but emphasized that there is no fire in Oakland at this time.

Below are some Twitter pics of the smoke and fire:
