UPDATE: More from Anastasia:

This was on the side heading toward verrizano bridge .. I would say exit before 14th avenue, all traffic was blocked off.

Original post:

Reader Anastasia K. sent in the above photo of a Mercedes-Benz engulfed in flames on the Belt Parkway. The photo was shot at approximately 5:40 p.m., so this is an ongoing incident.

We do not yet have information regarding the exact location, the cause of the fire, or the condition of those involved.

More information will be posted as it becomes available.
