Chemical plant fire closes Pulaski Skyway near New York City: reports

Traffic on a major roadway near New York City was closed in both directions Friday night after a fire at a chlorine plant in New Jersey sent a huge plume of dark smoke into the sky.

It happened near the Pulaski Skyway, the large elevated span that connects Newark and Jersey City, the two largest cities in New Jersey.

Residents in the surrounding area were being warned about “dangerous fumes” resulting from the blaze, which occurred in Kearny, a town located between the two cities, News 12 New Jersey reported.

Public safety officials in Newark were warning residents “to keep windows and doors shut and stay inside.”

Environmental officials across the Hudson River in New New York City were also warning residents about smoke, in a Twitter message posted shortly before 11 p.m.
