About 15 people were injured Friday during a fire on a Regional Transit Authority train car.

A spokeswoman for RTA said there were about 75 people on the train when the fire broke out just after noon at West 65th Street and Lorain Avenue.

Those injured were transported to local hospitals with minor injuries.

RTA does not know how the fire started. The company has turned off the power to determine the cause.

All the trains are shut down between the Triskett Station to East 55th Street.

There are shuttle buses taking passengers from the downed rail lines.

All trains going west from Triskett are running, all trains going east from 55th Street are running as well.
