SAN LEANDRO (CBS SF) — BART is reporting major delays Friday morning after the Bay Fair station was shut down due to smoke.

The station has reopened and limited service has been restored but BART officials have advised commuters to expect residual delays in all
directions from the station.

Firefighters responded to the scene and are investigating the incident. There have not been any reported injuries.

The shutdown forced trains to be turned back at several stations.
