Nineteen people were taken to local hospitals, most complaining of respiratory problems, though none suffered life-threatening injures, Rosado said. Five were transported in serious to critical condition, three were in serious to fair and 11 had minor injuries, he said.

When the blaze started, three trains were nearby in subway tunnels. Those trains proceeded to stations and riders were able to disembark and leave the stations, Hosinski said. Trains were then rerouted to elevated tracks as firefighters responded to the blaze, and the power was turned off to seven subway stations.
