Bridge truck fire sends smoke billowing over NYC

NEW YORK (AP) - August 16, 2013

There were no reports of injuries Friday in the fire on the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge. Traffic delays were reported on the major crossing between Manhattan and Queens.

Thick, black smoke billowed from the double-decker span's lower level. It took about two hours to get the fire under control.

WINS Radio reported that electrical cables that stretch along the side of the bridge also caught fire.

It's unclear how long it might take for normal traffic to resume.
