Brown Line service was partially suspended on the North Side Sunday morning due to a fire underneath the tracks. 

The Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) says trains are operating only between Belmont and the Loop.

The disruption began just before 5 a.m. Shuttle buses are available between Kimball and Belmont to provide connecting service.

Witnesses on the scene captured photos of a vehicle that had caught fire just below the tracks near the Western Station in Lincoln Square.

The CTA is working to restore service.
