Polar vortex makes the city take radical measures

The residents of the city shared the viral images and video of the train tracks on fire. However, these hardcore measures are the common practice for Metra, the city’s rail station, since snow and ice don’t let the system work properly.

The flames actually run adjacent to the rails, Metra spokesperson stated via BuzzFeed News.
