BOSTON (AP) — Service on Boston's Orange Line subway has been suspended after a small fire was reported on the track between Wellington Station and Malden Center Station.
Transit officials say the fire was reported at about 3:10 p.m.
Power to the third rail was shut off and passengers had to walk from the train toward Wellington Station. Shuttle busses were being used to transport passengers between Oak Grove and Community College Stations to replace subway service until further notice.
One person apparently fell while exiting the train. The injury is described as minor.
The train was not one of the new trains being introduced to the line.
The greater Boston subway system, operated by the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, has been plagued this year by a series of derailments and other mishaps.
