On Sunday, March 14 around 3:45pm I was on the ramp on the Brooklyn side of the Brooklyn bridge and noticed a car on fire in the distance.
I, along with most cars around me, stopped and even backed up a bit. Ten minutes later, the police arrived, followed by firemen who extinguished the fire.
These are some images from the whole sequence of events. All were shot on an iPhone and I cropped into the scene, which is why the quality is not great.
The progression to big flames was slow so I am hopeful that whomever was in the car stepped out before they were engulfed…
YouTube user narunass caught the fire on video from the Manhattan Bridge:
