TTC Delays and Fires

It seems over the past week, commuters have been experiencing a variety of delays. A few times
over the radio on the subway, I heard it was due to fires. One day in particular I heard the driver at the St Clair station radio that he was putting it out with an extinguisher. I am curious about whether these fires are at track level or on the platforms and if this is a safety concern on the subway system in general or just a problem at one station.

As for signal problems, these have been shutting down the entire line lately. Recent case in point is the following delay:

The is no service on ALL subway lines due to signal problems. No delays on the SRT Line. More info to follow.

To affect all lines in all directions this is a large outage.

We all know about switch problems, or broken down train, but at least a broken switch defaults to stop. Fires can hurt or kill us. I look forward to hearing back from someone working for TTC.
