Hayward Fires Disrupts BART Service At East Bay Stations

HAYWARD, Calif. (AP) - Bay Area Rapid Transit officials say at least two electrical fires at a Hayward substation have disrupted BART service in the East Bay.

The first fire broke out around 4:30 a.m Saturday and forced the
closure of the Hayward, South Hayward, Union City and Fremont BART
stations.

Another fire broke out again at the same substation shortly before noon and caused another substation to catch fire.

BART has been providing bus service between the stations where
service has been disrupted.

BART officials are investigating what caused the fires. No injuries have been reported.

Officials say the station closures could affect East Bay residents who plan to take BART to San Francisco for Saturday's fireworks show at the Embarcadero.
