NEW YORK — A vehicle caught fire on the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge, causing traffic and delays during the height of the Wednesday morning commute.
The SUV caught ablaze while on the upper-level of the Brooklyn-bound lanes.
No injuries were reported, fire officials said.
Firefighters worked to put the blaze out, which caused the temporary shut down of the Brooklyn-bound lanes. A Staten Island-bound lane was also closed off by fire trucks.
Lower-level lanes remained open to traffic during the incident, but motorists should expect delays heading to the bridge.
AIR11 was over the scene.
