SALT LAKE CITY — A fire on a southbound TRAX Red Line train caused no injuries but disrupted service for hours on Friday afternoon, according to Utah Transportation Authority officials.

Officials do not yet have word on what the cause of the fire was, UTA spokesman Carl Arky said. Main Street was blocked between 500 South and 700 South as authorities responded.

Bus bridges were put in place between multiple stations in the downtown area after the fire, but as of 8:25 p.m., UTA tweeted that all lines are now proceeding as normal and delays are to be expected.

The Salt Lake City Fire Department is handling the incident.
