Fire officials say a three-vehicle fiery crash has killed one person on the Brooklyn Bridge.

The Fire Department of New York said six other people suffered minor injuries.

The crash occurred at around 7 a.m. on Wednesday on the Brooklyn-bound side of the East River bridge.

The entire bridge was closed to traffic for about an hour. Major traffic tie-ups continued to spill onto surrounding roads as it was reopened, beginning with the Manhattan-bound lanes.
