WESTBURY, N.Y. — A fire at a Westbury junkyard has caused delays on the LIRR Thursday morning.

Several trains from Ronkonkoma and Farmingdale to Penn Station are also delayed.

The Oyster Bay branch was not affected by the fire, the Long Island Railroad tweeted.

The cause of the fire is not immediately known.
