Service on the TTC's Line 2 subway (Bloor-Danforth) is back to normal this morning after a fire yesterday shut down three west-end stations during the afternoon commute, disrupting thousands of passengers.

A fire at the back end of a subway car forced an evacuation of Runnymede station. Service between Keele and Islington stations was suspended. 

TTC officials were uncertain whether service would return to normal in time for today's morning commute, but sent a message at 4:38 a.m. saying that trains would be running normally today.
