BOSTON (CBS) – Part of the Red Line was shut down overnight due to an electrical fire at Andrew Station.

The MBTA said the fire was on the tracks and quickly put out, but riders were forced to evacuate their trains. Five cables were damaged in a manhole just south of Andrew Station. Power was restored just before 6 a.m. Thursday.

Service was suspended between Fields Corner and Broadway and passengers were moved to shuttle buses for several hours. Commuter rail trains also made local stops to accommodate passengers.
