Both sides of the bridge were forced to shut down the day before Thanksgiving, but the Manhattan-bound has re-opened since 8:30 a.m., the FDNY said. Traffic and delays in the area are expected.

According to the NYPD, one person died in the fire while the remaining five survived with minor injuries. No information on the victim is yet available.

Drive safe this Thanksgiving!
