Orange Line train catches fire at Forest Hills station; the delays cause a lot of commuter vexation

Firefighters at Forest Hills Orange Line station

Katy Purington got a glimpse of Boston firefighters at Forest Hills station around 7:50 p.m. for what the MBTA called "a mechanical fire" on a train.

The T brought in some buses to try to shuttle passengers between Forest Hills and Jackson Square.

Earlier today:
