The blaze erupted shortly before 5 p.m. at Lewis and Richmond Streets, officials said. No injuries were reported.
The fire was declared under control at 6:55 p.m.
The Betsy Ross Bridge was temporarily closed because of smoke. All lanes were reopened around 6:20 p.m.
Traffic also was slowed on I-95 in the area.
