Bronx Fire Briefly Disrupts 4 Train During Rush-Hour Commute, Officials Say
FORDHAM — A fire that engulfed a commercial building near 183rd Street disrupted 4 train service in the Bronx during Tuesday morning's rush-hour commute, officials said.
The fire, which broke out at 2276 Jerome Ave., near the 183rd Street subway station, was tackled by 60 firefighters at 6:20 a.m., an FDNY spokesman said.
Four firefighters suffered minor injuries in the blaze and were taken to North Central Bronx Hospital, a fire spokesman said.
Because the commercial building lies just beneath elevated tracks servicing the 4 train, the MTA temporarily suspended 4 train service between 161 St. Yankee Stadium and Woodlawn in both directions.
The fire was brought under control about 7 a.m., a fire spokesman said, and regular train service resumed soon after.
