Car Fire On Brooklyn Bridge Shuts Down Traffic

(UPDATE for Thursday, May 31, 2012 here.)

An SUV caught fire in the Manhattan-bound side of the Brooklyn Bridge about 4 p.m. Sunday afternoon. Multiple fire engines and rescue vehicles rushed to the scene. Manhattan-bound lanes were closed, and cars stuck behind the blaze slowly backed out or turned around and drove in the wrong direction towards Brooklyn to get off the bridge.

Cyclosity posted a photo of the car on Flickr and noted its license plate: CIN4LIFE
No word on injuries.
