Heavy, black smoke was seen coming out of a parking garage at Terminal C. Vehicles on the roof of the parking garage are seen engulfed in flames.

The blaze started on the rooftop of the garage shortly before 7 a.m., Port Authority officials said.

Terminal C's Level 1 Roadway has since reopened, the airport tweeted. Due to icing conditions, there is no access to the terminal's parking garage until further notice.

Those impacted by the closure should proceed to the Terminal C Level 1 taxi stand for further assistance.

No injuries are reported at this time, according to Port Authority.

Anyone traveling to the airport is asked to park in either Terminal A or Terminal B. Flights have not been impacted, Port Authority officials said.
