Port Authority Tunnel & Bridge agents doused a large brush fire that broke out Saturday morning at an approach to the George Washington Bridge.

Flaming debris from the 11:20 a.m. fire fell onto the roadway and burned the underside of the New Jersey-bound Amsterdam Avenue ramp, the authority's Joseph Pentangelo said.

Several Port Authority units responded, extinguishing the fire, clearing the roadway and reopening it to traffic.
