A raging fire in Richmond Hill, Queens, is now affecting subway service.
The 4-alarm blaze broke out around 5:45 p.m. on Jamaica Ave. near 112th St., consuming a series of row stores.
Only one injury was reported, according to fire officials, but it isn't serious.
There is no subway service in either direction between the Crescent St. Station and the Jamaica Center-Parsons/Archer Station due to heavy smoke at the 111th St. Station, according to the MTA.
Customers are being advised to take the Q56 bus as an alternative.
