  • North-West Jersey AmTrak Bridge fire

    May 12, 2005

    The fire broke out around 7:30 p.m. at the base of Amtrak's Portal drawbridge over the Hackensack River between Secaucus and Kearny. The cause was not immediately known. No injuries were reported, authorities said.

    Rail service was suspended between New York's Penn Station and Newark's Penn Station. It was not clear when it would be restored.

    The fire apparently started in wood pilings beneath the trestle and flames spread across a pier supporting one end of the structure.

    Firefighters on the bridge and a fireboat beneath it were working to contain the blaze.

    NJ Transit was cross-honoring rail tickets on its bus lines to assist commuters.
