BROOKLYN — L train service was back to normal by rush hour Thursday after riders faced "extensive" delays between Broadway Junction and Canarsie-Rockaway Parkway following a fire, officials said.

A fire that spread to train tracks near East 105th Street and Farragut Road was reported about 1:20 p.m., the FDNY said. Officials left the scene within an hour.

L train service was delayed in both directions after the incident, according to the MTA's website. Service was listed as "good" by about 5 p.m.

The MTA did not immediately provide additional information on the delays.
