[Updated] Reader report: Fire in the Union Square subway stop

There are reports of a fire in the Union Square subway stop... no word how extensive this might be... possibly contained to one small area on the south side of East 14th Street outside the Duane Reade ... am posting tweets/photos as people post them to Twitter...



Updated 1:17 p.m.:

Per a witness: "Word on the street is electrical converter on fire underground at Union Square."





Updated 2:49 p.m.

Per Gothamist: "Con Ed says the fire at Union Square is out, and was caused by 'failure of electrical cables.'"

I don't suppose this has anything to do with ConEd having locked out all of its workers?
