STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- FDNY responded to a vehicle on fire on the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, Sunday evening.

The call came in around 7:20 p.m. about a report of an accident on the Staten Island bound lower-level, an FDNY spokesman said.

All Staten Island-bound lanes were blocked, as well as two Brooklyn-bound lanes, according to tweets, causing backups.

There are no reported injuries, the spokesman said.
