MANHATTAN — Service along the L line was temporarily disrupted during Friday morning's rush-hour commute after a 911 call of a smoke condition in the First Avenue station, officials said.

The FDNY received reports of smoke in the station, near 14th Street, about 8:21 a.m., prompting trains in both directions to terminate before crossing the East River, fire and MTA officials said.

Firefighters determined there was no fire and left the scene about 9 a.m., an FDNY spokesman said.

Regular service resumed shortly afterward with some residual delays, according to the MTA's website.
