Fire Cancels Several LIRR Trains for PM Commute

Jamaica - (WALK) Long Island Rail Road crews are preparing for Thursday morning's commute, after a fire in an East River tunnel forced the LIRR to cancel at least 8 eastbound trains from Penn Station Wednesday.

A cable fire broke out in a tunnel shortly after 1:00 p.m. leaving a westbound train stranded and causing several delays.  No injuries were reported, but an estimated 100 people on the train had to wait more than two hours before it was towed from the tunnel, according to officials.
