LIRR service suspended due to switch problems
Updated at 12:35 PM today

NEW YORK (WABC) -- The Long Island Rail Road has suspended service in both directions on all branches except Port Washington due to switch problems.

The problems reportedly developed east of Jamaica when a fire broke out in the switching tower.

New York City Transit is honoring LIRR fares between Jamaica and New York and Brooklyn.

LIRR officials say it is unclear when this problem will be fixed, but they are concerned for the evening commute.
