Electrical fire disrupts Yellow Line service


Update 7:42 a.m.: A fire on a light pole in at the Pace bus yard in Evanston disrupted CTA Yellow Line service for a while during the morning rush hour.

Yellow Line service was resuming by about 7:30 a.m., but some residual delays were still being reported.

Fire Division Chief Dwight Hohl says fire units were called to the scene in the Pace yard at 2330 Oakton St., near James Park, just north of the Yellow Line tracks, about 6 a.m.

Commonwealth Edison crews are on the scene and ComEd reports electric service has been disrupted to fewer than five customers in the area.
