Subway service has resumed between St. George and Pape stations after an electrical fire forced the TTC to close a portion of Line 2 early Tuesday morning.

The fire broke out at Bloor-Yonge Station, according to police, and service along that stretch was shut down shortly after 7 a.m.

Toronto Fire Services and TTC officials worked to resolve the issue and were able to put the "main body of fire" out in the late morning.

A spokesperson for the transit authority said clean up and additional test runs were needed before service could fully resume.

Earlier in the day, police said large crowds had formed outside Pape and Broadview stations while shuttle buses transported riders delayed by the disruption.

"Crowds of people are walking into traffic," police added in a tweet.

The cause of the fire has not yet been determined, but the TTC said additional repairs will be carried out without further interruptions to service.
