San Francisco Fire Department investigators inspected train tracks heading to and from the East Bay and found no evidence of a fire that was reported by a train operator at about 8:45 a.m., BART spokesman Linton Johnson said.

The fire department cleared BART to restart full train service, which was expected at about 10 a.m.

Trains were still 15 to 20 minutes behind schedule, but were expected to be back on time within an hour, Johnson said.
