Fire on Penang Bridge

There's a massive bumper-to-bumper traffic crawl on the Penang Bridge right now, caused by a 132kV power cable catching fire at the 1.5-kilometre stretch of the bridge at about 10.45am this morning.

The jam at the toll plaza. The queue is reportedly about four kilometres long. But traffic is already allowed back on the bridge.

Smoke could still be seen billowing from the bridge at about 1.30pm.
