As of 11 a.m., Metro says service on the Orange and Silver lines between the Ballston and Rosslyn stations in Virginia remains suspended due to reports of a fire near the Clarendon station that appeared an hour ago.

Shuttle service is being provided:

According to the Arlington County Fire Department, the fire broke out between the Clarendon and Courthouse stations and has been put out:

No injuries have been reported at this time.

Update 11:25 a.m.: Metro says service is being restored with single-tracking, but riders should expect delays.

Update 12:15 p.m.: Metro says the fire was not cable- or power-related, as was the fire that occurred last week at the McPherson Square station, which led to the rail system’s complete closure on Wednesday:

Metro inspected roughly 600 jumper cables during the shutdown, identifying more than 300 defects of varying degrees. Twenty-seven of these required immediate repairs; three of them were particularly severe.
