VIDEO: A furious fire that consumed multiple vehicles under one of the city's elevated subway tracks wreaked abject havoc in the Bronx Wednesday, impacting nearly a half-dozen lines and leaving a charred catastrophe on the street.
Reports of the fire on Dyre Avenue and Light Street in Eastchester, right by the station serving the No. 5 line, came in shortly before 6 a.m. Wednesday. Service in the immediate area was suspended for about an hour, as firefighters combatted intense flames and MTA crews performed a track inspection to ensure they didn't sustain damage.
Service on the No. 5 line was restored by about 7 a.m., though delays were expected through the morning rush.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
