SEPTA resumes El service after fire


Trains and trolleys on SEPTA's Market-Frankford line are back on a normal schedule following a small fire that disrupted service for a little more than an hour Sunday afternoon, a spokeswoman said.

A small trash fire broke out about 1:45 p.m. near the westbound tracks at 30th Street Station. The Market-Frankford El was shut between 15th and 40th Streets until about 3 p.m. Passengers were directed to shuttle buses.

Trolley routes 10, 11, 13, 34, and 36 were diverted to the station at 40th and Market Streets.
