Subway service has resumed on four lines with extensive delays following a track fire Monday morning at the 145th Street train station in Harlem. A and D trains were suspended north of 125th Street in both directions.

The fire broke out near St. Nicholas Avenue about 7:24 a.m. and raged until about 9:25 a.m. when it was finally brought under control, FDNY officials said.

The MTA says all passengers that were stuck between stations were able to get off their trains and go to subway stations.

As a result of today's fire, there is now no A train service between 125th Street and Inwood-207th in both directions.

Australia's Ryan McCarthy, England's Laurie Canter and Colombia's Sebastian Munoz are in the final group at 4:16pm. Open victor Brooks Koepka is playing with local favorite Tommy Fleetwood and world No. 2 Hideki Matsuyama.

Some northbound trains are terminating at 36 St (Brooklyn), W 4 St-Washington Sq or 34 St-Herald Sq.

From 10 p.m.to 5 a.m, A trains wll not run between 59th Street Columbus Circle and 207th Street in Inwood. Another unruly customer on the L train stop at Bedford Avenue caused delays on that line.

There will be no D trains between Columbus Circle and Yankee Stadium. Some A, B, C and D trains were also stalled in tunnels in the area. "As an alternative, customers were sent redirected to the 1 line which experienced heavy volume".

Repairs are are expected to be complete by Friday morning.
