Smoke is coming up from the 6th ave line subway at the moment in NY.

They are speculating it's a storeroom fire but are not sure.

Firefighters are on the scene.

I'm off to find links, but it's a breaking story.

"There is no service on the B, D ,F and V lines between Broadway-Lafayette and 34th Street in both directions."

CNN just chimed in claiming it's an electrical fire.

www.cnn.com...

"There are no reports of injuries"

That's good to hear.

Curious though, as of yet there seems to be no heightened sense of security minus shutting down a few other lines.

I would think after all the subway threats, smoke and fire would be handled a little less casually.

I agree, I heard mentioned on the radio, but treated very casually.

I guess it was a busy morning.

After the "bomb threat" from the grey chevy in D.C. I heard nothing more about the N.Y. fire.

Here's what the N.Y. Times had to say

"disrupting service on seven subway lines and causing delays for hundreds of thousands of riders."

"The fire erupted around 8:05 a.m. in the northern end of the West Fourth Street station, a critical transit hub."

"By 8:41 a.m., service had been suspended on most or all of the seven lines"

"More than 100 firefighters responded to the blaze, and six had minor injuries."

Yet it was treated so casually newswise?

"This morning's fire was unusual in that it had nothing to do with the trains, signals, and tracks, but instead started in a work area wedged between subway tunnels."

Move along, there's nothing to see here

That's the strange part, "This morning's fire was unusual in that it had nothing to do with the trains, signals, and tracks, but instead started in a work area wedged between subway tunnels."

"The fire was confined to a long warren of offices along an interior mezzanine"

"Firefighters had difficulty locating the fire, which occurred in a storage or utility room that is not accessible to the public."

Maybe another distraction (like possibly the D.C. "bomb") from other top news stories such as the Rove, Delay, and possibly Cheney situations?
