Expect Delays: Fire near Bethesda Metro Station
A small insulator fire on a track near the Bethesda Metro Station Tuesday is forcing Red Line trains to share a single track between Friendship Heights and Grosvenor-Strathmore during the height of the evening rush hour, prompting ricocheting and residual delays for frustrated riders.
Metro spokeswoman Lisa Farbstein said the fire, which began at 6:08 p.m., was put out with a portable extinguisher.
Montgomery County fire crews responded, and trains will share a single track for most of what remains of rush hour while crews examine and clean the side of the track where trains head toward Shady Grove.
