B and C trains were suspended when an hours-long track fire erupted near West 145th Street on Monday morning, disrupting service along the A and D lines as well, officials said.

It's another Monday in paradise, and the subway is snarled with delays thanks to a track fire at 145th Street.

Service resumed after about an hour, around 7:45 a.m., with delays of up to an hour both ways.

D trains were down between 125th Street and Norwood Avenue, the MTA said. The Morris and Essex Line service was temporarily suspended in both directions between Chatham and Summit due to a trespasser fatality near Chatham.

There is no B train service between Bedford Pk Blvd and Brighton Beach in both directions.

No group has yet claimed responsibility for the explosions, but similar attacks in the past were claimed by Boko Haram militants. The source added that security teams had been drafted to the affected areas to ascertain the situation.

Some northbound D trains are terminating at 36 St (Brooklyn), W 4 St-Washington Sq or 34 St-Herald Sq.

The track fire comes as the MTA prepares to start a second straight week of FASTRACK repairs on the line.

A trains were suspended between 125th Street and 207th Street, but running local along the rest of the line, the MTA said.

Those who planned to take the A, B, C or D trains from 145th Street left the station to find alternate routes. Some A, B, C and D trains were also stalled in tunnels in the area. Customers are advised to use M3 or M4 buses making nearby station stops.
