4 and 5 Trains Out from Nevins to Brooklyn Bridge Due to Sparking Cables (UPDATE: Service Restored)

4 and 5 train service between Nevins Street and the Brooklyn Bridge-City Hall is out in both directions due to "hanging cables at the Wall Street Station." They threw off "sparks and heavy smoke" and started a small electrical fire. You're advised to use the J, M, Z, M, R, and W instead, if possible. "This is the 3rd 'smoke condition' on the line within the past 24 hours," says a Daily News commenter.

Oh, and L train Canarsie-bound service is running slow.

Update: Service is restored "with residual delays."
