Trash fire snarls NYC rush-hour subway service

Some were also trapped aboard a D train for about an hour.

An FDNY spokesperson reported that trash on the train tracks caught fire at about 7:25 a.m. Nine people sustained non-critical injuries and were transported to local hospitals, according to the FDNY.

The track fire comes as the MTA prepares to start a second straight week of FASTRACK repairs on the line. Cuomo also said he would add $1 billion to the MTA capital plan. It was not immediately clear how many other trains were evacuated.

As a result of today's fire, there is now no A train service between 125th Street and Inwood-207th 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.

The MTA decided certain northbound D trains would not run past 36th Street in Brooklyn, West Fourth Street or 34th Street in Manhattan. There is no C train service between Euclid Avenue and 168th Street in both directions. Check back for the latest status here.

Riders should expect "extensive delays", the MTA said in a 9:49 a.m. update.
