PITTSBURGH - A New Jersey salesman is apologizing to Penguins fans for a car fire that delayed them on their way to the game.
The fire was reported just after 5:30 p.m. Tuesday on the upper deck of the Fort Pitt Bridge, which carries the inbound lanes.

Tim MacKenzie, the owner of the vehicle that caught fire, called the Channel 11 newsroom Tuesday night.
"Going through the tunnel onto the bridge, the person behind me started honking and I noticed some white smoke coming off the quarter panel on my Subaru, so at that point I knew I had to get out of the tunnel," MacKenzie said.
He was driving from the South Hills to Monroeville.
