Small fire disrupts T service near Park Street station
By Amanda I. Bergeron, Globe Correspondent
A small electrical fire on tracks near the Park Street T station disrupted service on the Green Line this morning for about 25 minutes, according to a spokesman for the MBTA.
Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority spokesman Joe Pesaturo said that Park Street station was never closed but that Green Line trains did have to be stopped.
MBTA Sergeant Paul Carroll said a train most likely caused sparks that ignited flames on the westbound Green Line tracks just before 10 a.m.
Green Line riders were bused to and from the Park Street station during the incident.
