A subcontractor's truck went up in flames on the Bronx Whitestone Bridge Monday morning.

The truck was parked in a closed construction zone on the south side of the bridge when it caught fire just before 9:30 a.m.

No injuries were reported.

The bridge was closed in both directions for an hour.

The subcontractor was working on a $109 million project to widen the Queens approach lanes to the bridge.

The project is expected to be completed in early 2015.
