An enormous 4-alarm fire that broke out Friday morning at an Oakland construction site is almost contained, but an unstable crane is still causing concern.

Residents in the area have been evacuated, and no injuries have been reported. It was first reported at 4:21 a.m.

The project was set to include 196 apartments and 31,500 square feet of retail space.
