If you've been watching or reading the news you already know that there was a fire on the Blue Line during yesterday's rush hour and several passengers ended up in the hospital. The CTA Tattler has notes on lessons to be learned from the fire. Most importantly: Don't Panic. Good thing we all read our Red Eyes yesterday, right?
