PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — All lanes of the Ben Franklin Bridge were temporarily closed Friday morning after a car caught fire at about mid-span of the bridge.

The fire started at about 8 a.m. Friday in the lanes heading into Philadelphia.

As a result of the fire, the lanes heading into Philadelphia were shut down for nearly an hour so firefighters could douse the fire and clean-up the scene.
