Breaking: “Suspicious” Fire Disrupts Trains at Penn Station (Video)
A major fire at Penn Station in New York City was ruled “suspicious” today.
The fire was discovered at around two in the morning.
NBC New York reported:
Trains coming in and out of Penn Station early Tuesday were temporarily delayed following what officials are calling a “suspicious” fire by the LIRR concourse.
More than 150 firefighters battled the three-alarm fire that took over two levels of a construction site by the west end of the LIRR concourse at Penn Station at West 33rd Street and Eighth Avenue in Manhattan, FDNY Chief James Leonard said.
This follows a fire at the DC Metro on Monday where one person died and 80 were injured.
NY and DC both HVT's for terror. Suspicious fires in DC Metro and at NY Penn Station in last 2 days. Indicators that it's not coincidence.
