MURRAY, Utah — A fire forced UTA TRAX trains on the Blue and Red Lines to temporarily stop their routes Saturday evening.

The Utah Transit Authority (UTA) tweeted just before 6:15 p.m. that the two lines were "unable to proceed north or south from Murray North Station" due to the brush fire and fire personnel responding to it.

By 7 p.m., service had resumed, although "residual delays" were still expected.

UTA also said extra northbound trains were being sent to help transport those traveling to Rice-Eccles Stadium for a Garth Brooks concert Saturday night.
