Grease fires shut Red Line

Grease on tracks just outbound from South Station ignited in four separate spots shortly before 8 p.m.

The T shut Red Line service in both directions. Firefighters at first responded to Broadway due to heavy smoke. After evacuating the station, however, they discovered the smoke had been blown into that station through the tunnel from South Station.

Why there might be grease on the tracks.
