It suspended service on the B and C lines, and partially suspended A and D train service. The fire was contained by 9:30 a.m., but as a result of the incident there were no trains running on the alphabet line beyond 125th Street for a while. Riders from Brooklyn to Manhattan were inconvenienced during their morning commute.

D trains were down between 125th Street and Norwood Avenue, the MTA said. The authority urged people to remain on their trains, apparently a precaution after a recent A train derailment in Harlem that prompted some riders to self-evacuate. The fire occurred the second week the MTA planned to conduct FASTRACK repairs on the A, C, B and D lines.

There is no train service between Bedford Pk Blvd and Brighton Beach in both directions.
