FDNY Activity Snarls A, C Subway Service

An FDNY spokesperson informed Gothamist that they received a call at 7:24 a.m. about a track fire at the 145th Street station on the A, B, C, D lines.

Firefighters had extinguished the blaze by 9:15 a.m.

There will be no D trains between Columbus Circle and Yankee Stadium.

Additionally, A trains were not running between 125th Street and Inwood-207th Street, and D trains were not running between 125th Street and Norwood-205th Street, the agency said.

Photos and video on social media showed platforms packed with crowds, and riders evacuating trains that were stuck between stations.


A train service is local in Brooklyn and Manhattan in both directions. The Morris and Essex Line service was temporarily suspended in both directions between Chatham and Summit due to a trespasser fatality near Chatham. There is no C train service between Euclid Avenue and 168th Street in both directions.

The MTA decided certain northbound D trains would not run past 36th Street in Brooklyn, West Fourth Street or 34th Street in Manhattan.

As an alternate for the A and C, the MTA is advising riders to use the M3 or M4 bus or the 1 train, which frankly looks like a complete disaster.

Update 10:00 a.m.: Service has resumed on the A, B, C and D lines with "extensive delays" according to the NYPD.
