    A large brush fire is burning on Staten Island near the Goethals Bridge, the FDNY says. 

    It's not clear what started the three-alarm fire near Western and Gulf avenues in the Bloomfield section just before 7:30 p.m.

    About 140 firefighters responded, and had some initial trouble getting water on the fire because of a lack of hydrants in the area, according to officials on the scene. 

    The blaze was expected to be under control by late Monday night. One firefighter had a minor injury. 

    No buildings are in the immediate vicinity of the fire, authorities say.
