(PIX11) — Fire department activity at Grand Central shut down a portion of the 7 line between Queens and Manhattan Wednesday, authorities said.

Service had been stalled between Queensboro Plaza and Times Square due to a fire in the tunnel. No injuries were reported.

Earlier in the morning, there had been no 7 train service between those two points for about an hour.

By 11:30 a.m., service along the 7 line was mostly back to normal, with a single blip: some southbound 7 trains are terminating at 61 St-Woodside, Queensboro Plaza or Hunters Point Ave., MTA said.

As alternates, commuters were advised to take the N or Q trains and allow additional travel time, the agency said.
