Blue Line Fire

July 11th, 2006 · No Comments

A Blue Line train derailled and caught fire. The train was shut down in both directions from Washington to Damen. The #56 bus, an alternate route, was packed and impossible to get on. This is everyone walking home on Milwaukee Avenue.

Smoke was pouring out of this vent. Is this where the Blue Line goes underground?
