Smoke at Rockville Station causes Red Line delays

Update (8:36 a.m.): A Metro spokeswoman said a fire started about 7 a.m. under a train at the station. Montgomery County firefighters quickly extinguished the conflagration. There were no reported injuries. Authorities suspect a mechanical problem sparked the fire.
