An apparent track fire at 145th Street caused extensive subway delays Friday afternoon, the FDNY and MTA said.

A, B, C and D trains were not running in large parts of Manhattan for part of the afternoon, the MTA said. Service resumed with extensive delays just after 3 p.m., the transit agency added.

On social media, people reported seeing smoke in the 145th Street station, though the source and severity were not immediately clear.

The MTA said the FDNY extinguished the fire at 2:50 p.m. and service has resumed.
