Unverified reports suggest the fire started in an electric bike and at least nine injured.
“A/C trains are running with delays in both directions after FDNY responded to a track fire at High St,” the New York City Transit Subway said on X, formerly known as Twitter.
It also cancelled at least two trains, but it is not clear if it was due to the fire.
