LIRR restored b/w Jamaica, Mineola

Service has been restored between Jamaica and Mineola following an incident involving a disabled train.



News 12 has learned that the train from Ronkonkoma to Penn Station got stuck just east of Bellerose after sparks from the undercarriage started a small fire.



Officials say a train crew put the fire out and service was restored in both directions.



There has been a flurry of delays on the Ronkonkoma, Port Jefferson, Oyster Bay and Hempstead lines.
