L Train Running Again After Smoke Condition

Subway service was suspended for about two hours on the "L'' line due to heavy smoke caused by a tunnel fire in lower Manhattan.

Fire officials say the fire erupted at about 9:25 a.m. Monday near the 14th Street and Eighth Avenue station. NYC Transit says there were no trains in the station or in the tunnel at the time.

"L'' service was suspended in both directions between the Manhattan station and Bedford Avenue in Brooklyn.

It was restored at about 11:40 a.m. Officials say a transit worker was treated for an asthma attack.
