BART back on schedule after repairs 

BART trains are expected to be fully back on schedule today after a small fire in a train tunnel in San Francisco on Tuesday morning caused system-wide delays for much of the day, authorities said.

Crews worked overnight to repair damaged sensors that allow trains to run automatically without getting too close to one another, BART spokesman Lynton Johnson said. The repairs were completed by about 4:10 a.m. and the first trains of the day were running on time.

The sensors were damaged in a small fire between BART's Civic Center and Powell Street stations at around 8 a.m.
