JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) — Service between Journal Square and 33rd Street on the Hoboken Line resumed Monday after a fire broke out in a PATH tunnel in Manhattan.

A Fire Department spokesman says the fire was reported at 3:38 p.m. Sunday at 19th Street and Sixth Avenue in Chelsea. No injuries were reported but the 23rd Street station was evacuated.

Workers were still making repairs Monday morning. Service returned to normal at about noon.

Passengers were told to use light rail at Exchange Place to avoid the closure and New Jersey Transit honored PATH tickets.
