CLEVELAND — A garbage can fire inside Terminal Tower near the Tower City station has shut down the Blue and Green lines between Tower City and the East 55th Street Station. RTA says 67R buses will replace the rail service.

"The Fire Marshal has been notified and will follow up on the issue with the fire alarm system," said Norman.
The fire damage is estimated at $2,000.
No injuries were reported.
