F-Train fire; Photo - NewsdaySaturday's fire on the southbound F-train in Brooklyn seems to have been caused by a piece of the train, connected to the third-rail, came loose. Passengers jumped onto the tracks near York Street to escape the fire, bringing to light a whole new batch of safety concerns: Most subway stations only have one marked exit, many other emergency exits are shuttered off. The police are insisting that their fortuitous presence at the York Street staiton helped save lives by directing passengers where to go for evacuation, but Gothamist wonders then does that mean there will subway officers at every single station?

The F-train still smelled of smoke yesterday, which makes Gothamist wonder how the much sicker it made the drunk hipsters headed back to Smith Street and 7th Avenue at 3AM feel.
