Possible fire causes major VRE delays

Mark Berman

7:25 A.M. UPDATE:
Train 306 is now 55 minutes late, and it's approaching Quantico. Train 308 is 35 minutes late, and it's approaching Brooke. Train 310, departing Fredericksburg at 7:10 a.m., is moving relatively on-time.

There are some big VRE delays due to a possible fire near the tracks in Fredericksburg. Trains were being held, which held train 306 (scheduled to depart Fredericksburg at 6:05 a.m.) and all other Fredericksburg Line trains south of Fredericksburg.

Trains are on the move and the railroad has reopened to traffic. Train 306 is 45 minutes late, while train 308 (scheduled to depart Fredericksburg at 6:30 a.m.) is 20 minutes late.

If you want to avoid the VRE this morning, the Franconia-Springfield and King Street Metro stations will accept VRE tickets for Metro admission.

"possible fire near the tracks"?
This says almost nothing. Is Metro running VRE these days?
