Toronto's Commuters Stranded After A Fire Broke Out On The TTC

People rushed to Spadina to use the streetcars.

Toronto commuters found themselves stranded this morning as the TTC shut down south of Bloor Street.

Around 8:30am this morning, the TTC announced that trains were holding on Line 1 in both directions at St. Andrew Station near King and University due to a fire investigation and service was suspended. 

Commuters rushing to Spadina to use the streetcars caused chaos and stranded many looking to find a way to work.

Passengers heading north on Line 1 also found themselves stranded as the trains turning back at Bloor slowed down service in both directions. Fire trucks were seen parked outside.

TTC officials announced that the delay had been cleared just before 10am this morning, but commuters will find longer than normal travel times and delays. 

"Customers may experience longer than normal travel times southbound between Yorkdale and St George Stations," the TTC wrote on Twitter.

Toronto commuters have since reported being 20-30 minutes late to their destinations.
