Mark,
 
You are right, but the condition may be extrapolated...
 
It appears that an effective overlapping system of fire suppression is warranted on all bridges, especially, on the steel structures.  In the current situation, it may be a worthy, relatively cost- and time-effective investment into the infrastructure.

The Bay Bridge is still standing. 

The damage occured to some of the elevated structures
at the East end of the bridge where several freways
intersect.
