Taxi erupts into flames inside Battery Tunnel

Firefighters are battling a car fire inside the Battery Tunnel, authorities said.

The FDNY responded shortly before 12:15 p.m. to the blaze in the Brooklyn-bound side of the Hugh L. Carey Tunnel, a spokesman said.

Part of the tunnel was closed while firefighters work to extinguish the flames. Additional details about the incident were not immediately available.

Hours earlier, the Brooklyn Bridge was temporarily closed when three cars burst into flames following a four-car crash on the Brooklyn-bound side. One person died and six others were injured in that fiery wreck.
