A small track fire between Chicago and Clark/Division sent 19 CTA Red Line riders to area hospital for smoke inhalation. Follow updates at the Tribune’s Chicago Breaking News site.
Update: Passengers again report spotty announcements from operators. One passenger told the Tribune, “We were given no instruction.” The CTA has been criticized in the past for poor passenger communication. Certainly the CTA must improve here.
