NEW YORK — A fire in an electrical room forced the evacuated of the Oculus and suspended PATH train service out of the World Trade Center station during the Thursday morning commute, authorities said.
Shortly before 8:30 a.m., the PATH Train tweeted about the smoke condition, temporarily suspending service on the Newark-WTC line and the Hoboken-WTC line.
Service resumed at about 9 a.m. and the Oculus has been reopened, transit officials said, warning riders to expect delays. NY Waterway ferry and New Jersey Transit bus and rail will cross-honor PATH passes until 10 a.m.
Transit and fire officials said the evacuation and service suspensions were due to a smoke condition caused by a small fire in an electrical room.
