Smoke causes Red Line delays
UPDATE 3:09p.m.: The fire near Dupont has been extinguished, Metro says, but some delays may persist.
UPDATE 2:40p.m.: Major delays continue in both directions due to two problems downtown: An "arcing insulator" is on fire near Dupont Circle, and Metro employees are working to extinguish it, while several blocks south, Farragut North is experiencing a track circuit problem.
Those issues come on top of earlier disruptions at Gallery Place-Chinatown this afternoon. Metro says shuttle service has been requested--a step usually reserved for when service between two points is cut off entirely.
Original post: Metro says smoke on the tracks outside Dupont Circle Station is causing delays while trains share a single track between that station and Van Ness-UDC.
