The L train resumed service roughly eight hours after a manhole fire erupted, the MTA said.
There was no train service between Eighth Avenue and Lorimer Street after the FDNY received calls about smoke along the L train line in Manhattan and Brooklyn around 9:17 a.m., officials said. Firefighters then determined that smoke was coming from a manhole near 14th Street and Avenue D. Deputy Assistant Chief Michael Gala said about 100 firefighters responded and the fire was brought under control by 10:50 a.m.
L train service was restored shortly after 5 p.m.
One civilian in Brooklyn and one firefighter in Manhattan had minor injuries, Gala said.
