CSX fire causes train delays

A minor mechanical fire in a CSX locomotive around 10 a.m. Friday morning on tracks in Crystal City caused minor delays for some commuter trains, Arlington fire officials said.

Stoppages lasted about 10 minutes before they were diverted, but trains are all moving again, said Lieutenant Ed Hughes, an Arlington County Fire spokesman.
