A three-alarm fire broke out under Penn Station early this morning, causing subway and LIRR disruptions. The fire is under control, but the investigation into the "suspicious" blaze is continuing.

The fire broke out in the LIRR's West End Concourse area, around 2:30 a.m. FDNY Chief James Leonard said, "We had two levels of fire down there, an extensive amount of fire which did cause structural damage to the station. The fire is suspicious. We do have our fire marshals on the scene and we’re investigating.”

According to WABC 7, "While the main body of fire has been knocked down, small pockets of fire are still being extinguished. Heavy smoke filled the subway station on the A, C and E subway lines. A and E subway trains bypassed the 34th Street station, but are now providing normal service. The subway station was evacuated of all MTA employees."

Big fire on 34th ST.. Shit crazy ...
