The debris fire was reported at 9:39 a.m. near Seventh and 16th streets. Cars can travel under the freeway at that intersection, which is also a Caltrain crossing.

Caltrain spokeswoman Christine Dunn said trains were stopped for a few minutes but are now operating at reduced speeds through the area.

The fire dispatcher said at 10 a.m. that the fire had been controlled.
