Last night, a fire broke out on the roof of the signal room at the West 8th Street station in Brooklyn. Which means that the F and Q are suspended near the stop (more about the service changes below) today for crews to start repairs, because the fire was extinguished too late for workers to start last night.

According to MyFoxNY, the MTA shut off power to the tracks and the firefighters were able to bring the blaze under control nearly three hours later at 9:20 p.m. Here's video of the fire:

Here's what the MTA says about today's service:

At approximately 6:30 Friday evening, a fire on the roof of a signal room located about 20 feet north of the West 8th Street station caused service disruptions on the F and Q lines. At this time, the F remains suspended between Coney Island-Stillwell Avenue and Avenue X. The Q is suspended between Brighton Beach and Coney Island-Stillwell Avenue. The suspensions will remain in place through the night and into tomorrow. Free shuttle buses will be available until train service resumes on the F line at Shell Road, Neptune Avenue and West 8th Street and for the Q, along Brighton Beach and Surf Avenues. Although the fire has been extinguished, workers must wait until daybreak in order to safely make inspections and any needed repairs on the elevated track area. Beachgoers should avoid the F and Q lines tomorrow and use other subway lines where possible.
