Blue Line situation was dire due to a third-rail fire

At 8:45 a.m., the MBTA reported halting Blue Line service due to smoke at Airport station. Turned out there was "a fire along the third rail near airport," the T updated at 9:01 a.m., but it was out and service was returning, but with "residual delays," some of which might be caused by T workers trying to figure out what sparked the fire.

As a daily Blue Line rider, it seem that the BL has gone downhill recently. It was always the most dependable line in the system with very few delays. Now, with the slow zones, longer headways, almost daily signal problems, and the delays as "crews inspect overhead wires" etc, it's gotten worse.
