Electrical Explosion Causes Delay at SF BART Station

A smoky electrical explosion occurred just before midnight at a San Francisco BART station, prompting delays and crews to work furiously overnight to fix the problem before the Wednesday morning commute.

She said the system experienced a third-rail equipment problem near the Montgomery station that caused smoke, and crews had to single track trains while power crews worked to fix the problem.

Spokeswoman Alicia Trost said that the morning commute is fine.
