PENNSVILLE TOWNSHIP, N.J. (CBS) — A fire under the Delaware Memorial Bridge shut down traffic for hours.
The fire was reported around 10:30 a.m. All lanes of the Delaware span eventually reopened around 5 p.m.
The Delaware River and Bay Authority says crews were welding underneath the bridge when sparks from the work lit construction materials on fire under the Southbound Lanes on the Delaware Side.
