Fire Disrupts New York’s Grand Central Terminal Service

Courtesy of Ben Parkin(NEW YORK) -- It was a nightmare situation for commuters at Grand Central Terminal in New York on Tuesday night.

Metro-North Railroad service was suspended into and out of Grand Central because of a tractor-trailer fire under elevated tracks in East Harlem.

According to the New York City Fire Department, the blaze broke out just before 7 p.m. ET and caused damage to 10 cars.

FDNY said there were numerous evacuations to apartments in the surrounding area of the fire.

The only injury that FDNY reported was a firefighter who tripped and fell.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority was in the process of being cleared Tuesday night to inspect the tracks to evaluate damage.

Metro-North is one of the largest commuter lines in the U.S.
