NEW YORK (WTNH) — Service into and out of Grand Central Terminal has been suspended due to a fire in the Park Avenue Tunnel.

According to Metro-North officials, a tractor-trailer fire under the tracks at E 19th Street and Park Avenue has delayed train service into and out of Grand Central Terminal on Tuesday. Metro-North’s New Haven line was delayed for hours before Metro-North announced around 10 p.m. that all service will be suspended for the night.

New Haven-line customers are advised to take the subway service to the Woodlawn station to connect with the eastbound Metro-North service.

At 8 p.m., officials updated the fire to a 4-alarm. There is no word as to when the train service will be back up and running. Engineers now have to examine the area to make sure it is safe to run trains.
