Trash fire causes delays on Blue and Yellow lines
News


ARLINGTON (WUSA9) -- The Pentagon City metro station was closed for about an hour Thursday night after a trash fire, causing delays on the Blue and Yellow lines.

Arlington County firefighters say the problem was caused by an insulator on the inbound side of the platform. Power to the third rail was shut off while firefighters conducted their investigation.

Trains were single tracking between National Airport and L'Enfant Plaza while the Pentagon City station was closed. Bus service was also provided.

The station has reopened.
