Rosa and downtown San Rafael for the rest of today following a series of North Bay wildfires.

SMART crews inspected the tracks and equipment and resumed limited northbound and southbound service around 2:30 p.m. between the two cities and the stations in between.

SMART will be running three-car trains instead of two cars for maximum capacity, and will be sounding the train horn at all crossings because of poor visibility caused by heavy smoke and other fire conditions.

Full service will be restored as soon as possible, SMART officials said.
