Normal SEPTA Service Resumes After Tunnel Fire

Regular service has resumed on SEPTA's Market Frankford Line after a small trash fire near 30th Street Station.

Officials say a rubbish fire broke out on the westbound side in a tunnel on 31st and Market Sunday afternoon.

While the fire was quickly placed under control, the El train was shutdown on the Market-Frankford Line both westbound and eastbound between 15th and 40th street stations.

Shuttle buses were used between 15th and 40th. Trolley routes 10, 11, 13, 34, and 36 were also diverted to the 40th and Market street station.

Shortly after 3 p.m., SEPTA officials announced that regular service resumed though passengers may experience some delays.

No one was injured during the fire. Officials continue to investigate the cause.
