NEW YORK (AP) — The Fire Department says about 75 people have been evacuated from a Manhattan subway station and two neighboring buildings due to elevated levels of carbon monoxide.
There were no immediate reports of injuries.
MTA spokesman Kevin Ortiz says smoke was reported in the station at 34th Street and Seventh Avenue due to a nearby manhole fire.
He says 1, 2 and 3 trains have been bypassing the station.
Traffic also was hampered in the area due to fire and utility vehicles.
The FDNY says the incident began around noon Wednesday.
