NEW YORK (AP) - Firefighters are finishing up a battle against a blaze on a major New York City bridge that sent huge clouds of black smoke billowing over the city.

There were no reports of injuries Friday in the fire on the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge. Traffic delays were reported on the major crossing between Manhattan and Queens.

Thick, black smoke billowed from the double-decker span's lower level.

WINS Radio reported that electrical cables that stretch along the side of the bridge also caught fire.

The fire department said at midday that the blaze was out but that firefighters were still at the scene.
