Fire forces evacuation of BART train at Orinda

ORINDA, Calif. (AP) - A fire erupted under a commuter train in the East Bay during the evening commute, sending smoke throughout a Bay Area Rapid Transit station and forcing train passengers to evacuate.

No one was injured, and train traffic was continuing through the Orinda station.

KTVU reports (http://bit.ly/16wtLcE ) that the fire began about 6 p.m. Commuters driving by the station soon began posting pictures of the fire online.

BART spokeswoman Alicia Trost said in a tweet Wednesday evening that technicians were on the scene working to determine the cause.
