Emergency crews responded to a fire at a residential structure in the 3000 block of Wheeler Street, near Ashby Avenue, Saturday morning.

The stretch of Ashby between Shattuck and Telegraph avenues was closed to traffic as a result, Berkeley Police Lt. Andrew Rateaver told Berkeleyside.

Rateaver said nobody was injured by the fire but a dog was rescued from the house.

BPD issued a Nixle alert at 8:52 a.m. warning about traffic delays. It reissued one about 15 minutes later clarifying that Ashby was the street where the delays were happening.
