Red Line Back to Normal After Train Fire
Update: Normal service resumed on Red Line shortly before 5 p.m. No injuries were reported in the train fire that caused Metro to take a Glenmont-bound train out of service at the Rockville station at about 4:30 p.m.
Original Post: Riders on the Red Line should expect delays in both directions because of a fire reported under the last car of a Glenmont-bound train. The fire was reported about 4 p.m. and the train was pulled into the Rockville station about 4:30 p.m.
About 20 to 30 people who were on the train got off the train, where it was taken out of service. Trains are single-tracking between Shady Grove and Twinbrook. Montgomery County fire personnel are at the scene.
