A smoke condition disrupted subway service for Lower East Side commuters Friday morning, though the FDNY quickly cleared the scene.
There were service changes and delays in F and M train service for about an hour Friday while the FDNY investigated the source of smoke at the 2nd Avenue station. The MTA later cited a debris fire as the cause of the smoke.
NYC Transit said the FDNY had cleared the scene and service was being restored as of about 9:45 a.m.
Pictures and video on social media showed large crowds of people leaving subway stations along that line, and some smoke rising to street level.
