NEW JERSEY (PIX11) — Service on two New Jersey transit lines has resumed with delays Wednesday morning after someone was struck and killed by a train along one line and a wire fire broke out on the other, the agency said.

Pascack Valley Line rail service had been suspended in both directions from Spring Valley to Hoboken — the entire line — because a high-tension wire caught fire between the River Edge and Oradell stations, New Jersey Transit said on its website.

Service on that line will resume starting with the 8:51 a.m. train from Spring Valley, the agency said.

Trains are running again on the Morris and Essex Line, but commuters should expect delays up to 45 minutes. That’s because someone was struck and killed by a train near Dover station, shutting down service between Hackettstown and Denvill.
