At 8AM this morning, a fire with unknown causes was reported on the tracks of the DC Metro rail. Montgomery County Emergency crews are on scene investigating.

The Fire

It was reported that the fire was seen at the Medical Center Metro station. It has since closed the one side of the track. Metro reports that the Red Line trains are now single tracking in both directions between the Grosvenor Metro station and the Medical Center Metro station.

At 9:20, the Red Line went back to normal operations, but expect delays due to the traffic build up caused by the single tracking.
