It was a harried morning for thousands of TTC subway riders this morning.

Subway service was restored at about 9:15am, after a 4 hour closure on Line 2, Bloor-Danforth, between St. George and Pape stations because of a fire at track level of Yonge Station.

TTC CEO Andy Byford is keen to find out what started it.

“Once my crews have gone and washed up and had a chance to reflect upon what happened, the investigation starts. I want to find out what was the root cause of that? Was there work being done at the location? What caused that problem to occur on a power cable, I want to know that,” Byford explained to reporters once the subway was running again.

While service was suspended, ninety shuttle buses were used to ferry passengers between St. George and Pape stations along Bloor-Danforth.
