NEWARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Two firefighters were rushed to the hospital after a two-alarm fire broke out in a warehouse near Amtrak-owned train tracks Saturday morning in Newark, New Jersey.

The Northeast Corridor and North Jersey Coast lines were briefly suspended in both directions between Newark Airport and Penn Station New York, according to the transit agency.

Additionally, the Raritan Valley Line was suspended between Cranford and Newark Penn Station due to the response to the blaze.

NJ TRANSIT riders took to Twitter to post video of the flames, which broke out in a three-story vacant warehouse close to the tracks approaching Newark Penn Station around 10 a.m.

Service resumed just before noon and was back to normal by 5 p.m., according to the transit agency.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey said the fire had no impact on flight operations at Newark Liberty International Airport.

Two Newark firefighters were taken to University Hospital with minor injuries.
