SOUTHWEST PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- A taxi fire forced the closure of the Platt Bridge in Southwest Philadelphia early Monday morning.
Philadelphia Police say the taxi caught fire in the middle of the bridge at 12:45 a.m.
Firefighters put out the flames and worked to control a fuel spill from the incident.
All lanes of the bridge reopened at 2:35 a.m.
The closure caused backups, and temporarily stranded some people who had already made their approach onto the bridge.
There were no injuries reported.
Platt Bridge closed overnight due to car fire
