Orange Line is dead, try a bus instead

Update: Trains moving again, except between Wellington and Oak Grove, where the T is rolling out shuttle buses.

A fire at Malden Center is jamming up the entire Orange Line. Am posting this from aboard a Forest Hills train at Back Bay, which is standing by because of the fire several miles in the other direction.

I was on that train. It kept stopping in every station and sitting there for 10 minutes. Why it was traveling like that, I have no idea, but MBTA management is clueless.
