LIVE STREAM: Truck Fire & Billowing Smoke on the Queensboro Bridge

A raging truck fire on the lower deck of New York’s Queensboro Bridge, aka the 59th Street Bridge, prompted a massive emergency response this morning after early reports of an “explosion” that were later debunked.

Here’s a live-stream, showing traffic is still moving slowly on the upper deck.

Several fire vehicles are on the scene.
