Grand Central Terminal Evacuated After Fire


A fire broke out at Grand Central Terminal in Midtown Manhattan Wednesday morning. A heavy smoke condition forced the evacuations of the terminal, as power was shut off to multiple track lines – including Amtrak.

It was originally believed that the fire broke out on the mezzanine level of the Graybar Building at about 9:30Am – but later appeared to have been a track fire below.

No further information was immediately available.
