A New York Police Department truck caught fire after breaking down at a major intersection and sending flames and black smoke billowing over the heart of the city this morning.
The truck fire broke out about 9 a.m. in Columbus Circle, outside the Trump International Hotel and Tower.
No injuries were reported.
The NYPD flatbed truck was carrying metal barricades when the engine caught fire and quickly spread to the cab.
Photos of the blaze showed the truck's front engine compartment open as flames consumed the rig.
