Q train service was briefly interrupted on Thursday morning when a presence of smoke was reported at the station on 72nd and 2nd Avenue.

An FDNY dispatch call indicates that the smoke was coming from the downtown track. Several minutes after the call, the train conductor told an officer that the smoke was getting thicker. Customers were evacuated from the station at about 8am.

The smoke, which reportedly began to spread due to an electrical problem, started to dissipate after a few minutes, and the Q train soon resumed service.
