Train Conductor Dead, 16 Hurt in Suspicious NYC Subway Fire

At least one man has died and several other people suffered life-threatening injuries when a fire broke out inside an underground subway station in Manhattan early Friday, authorities say. An apparent emotionally disturbed person is being questioned by investigators in connection with the fire, two senior law enforcement officials said. It is too soon to say if the fire was a deliberate act or if the man played a role in it, the officials said. At this point, authorities are treating the incident as suspicious, they said.
