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 (http://bit.ly/166JGSb) the fire appears to have been caused by a piece of propulsion equipment that overheated below the tracks.
