A truck caught on fire and sent plumes of thick, black smoke into the air on New York City’s Queensboro Bridge Friday morning.
WINS Traffic NYC reported that the vehicle was fully engulfed in flames.
The fire was pretty intense:
Traffic near the bridge is backed up, and both the upper and lower levels of the bridge were closed as firefighters battled the blaze, according to ABC in New York.
It appears the fire is now out:
