2008_10_bqefi.jpgReader Joel sent us this photograph of some billowing black smoke in downtown Brooklyn (he took it from Manhattan--see a bigger image here). While it looks ominous--and there is a lot of smoke--it turns out it is a truck fire on the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway, where it comes out near Middagh/Hicks Streets. The truck was reportedly carrying construction materials, but nothing hazardous.
