Red Line trains rerouted due to ‘small rubbish fire’ at Lake stop

Massive CTA reconstruction on Red Line to begin next week

CHICAGO — 95th-bound Red Line L trains are being rerouted to the elevated lines for several stops after firefighters responded to a what CFD called a “small rubbish fire” Tuesday evening. The fire is now out and no injuries are reported.

Howard-bound trains were also rerouted but have since resumed normal service below ground.

As of 5:50 p.m. Tuesday, the CTA said Red Line trains headed towards 95th/Dan Ryan will be rerouted after the Fullerton stop in the following order, and resume normal service at the Cermak-Chinatown stop. CFD said normal service should resume once fire trucks are clear.
