Greenwich commuters shouldn’t see train delays due to Bridgeport fire that closed tracks last night

Updated: Friday, June 22 at 1:09 a.m.: A warehouse fire in Bridgeport last night, located close from Metro North train tracks, caused a bunch of delays for passengers on the New Haven Line.

However, according to the MTA, this morning’s commute should be normal, as trains throughout the New Haven Line are once again running on or close to schedule.

Last night at 7:54 p.m., the Bridgeport Fire Department requested that Metro North close all four tracks located near the warehouse fire. At 8:39 p.m., Metro North was able to open one track. Trains are once again moving, however the closure of the train tracks forced delays estimated at 20-25 minutes.

It was reported that the warehouse that was on fire, located in the area of Railroad and Hancock avenues in Bridgeport, was abandoned. The fire started around 8 p.m.
