Yesterday, a subway track fire screwed up service on the 1, 2, and 3 trains. WABC reported that it started yesterday afternoon, "near West Broadway just south of Franklin Street." The problems basically mired lower Manhattan service. Was anyone on the subway? Did anyone head to a station, only to find out there was no service? Gothamist knows that track fires are actually pretty common (rats burning garbage to keep warm?), but we're still curious about what the MTA and authorities said and did.
