Grass Fire Shuts Down BART Service in Parts of the East Bay

SAN LEANDRO (KRON) — A fire near the tracks is stopping BART service in parts of the East Bay for the late Monday morning commute.

Pictures from our helicopter partners at ABC7News show light smoke emerging from the BART tracks at the Bay Fair station.

The delays of about 20 minutes are mostly on the Fremont Line in the Dublin / Pleasanton, Fremont, Richmond and Daly City directions, BART officials say.

There is currently no service between the Bay Fair and Hayward stations.

KRON 4’s George Rask is following these developments on TV. Also monitor the KRON 4 Mobile App, and for the latest on this developing story.
