Orange Line briefly shut by track fire

Boston firefighters responded to Downtown Crossing around 10:40 p.m. on a report of smoke that turned out to be from a small fire on the inbound tracks between Chinatown and Downtown Crossing.

Once the power was shut off, firefighters quickly doused the fire, located between the two "running rails" rather than along the third rail, with a fire extinguisher.
