BART delays system-wide as officials investigate track fire

BART (KRON) — BART is investigating a fire on the track-way Between Glen Park and Balboa Park in San Francisco. Service has slowed in that area as investigators look into a fire that broke out on the tracks.

In a statement, officials said, “BART is recovering from an earlier problem. There is a 20-minute delay system wide due to an equipment problem on the track on the San Francisco Line.”

According to BART officials the fire was possibly caused by dry pine needles that ignited on the tracks.  The fire has since been contained.

All lines are up and running, but as the system recovers delays are still expected.
