MANHATTAN — Subway service on the A line was suspended in Inwood during the Thursday afternoon rush hour due to a smoky fire, officials said.

The blaze broke out in a storage room at the 207th Street Station around 4:30 p.m., the FDNY said.

The main body of the fire had been knocked down by 5 p.m., but a heavy smoke condition remained.

There were no immediate reports of injuries, officials said.

According to the MTA, A train service was suspended in both directions from the Dyckman Street station to the Inwood-207th Street station.
