ORINDA, Calif. (AP) - Bay Area Rapid Transit officials say the train that was evacuated after a fire broke out has been cleared from the tracks and taken to a maintenance yard.

Both tracks at BART's Orinda station were open again around 6:30 a.m. Thursday. The fire broke out the previous evening, sending smoke through the station and forcing passengers to evacuate. No one was hurt.

BART spokeswoman Alicia Trost tells the Contra Costa Times ( the fire appears to have been caused by a piece of propulsion equipment that overheated below the tracks.
