J-Church: Muni Is Burning

A reader sent in this item about another hazard of riding an incident today on the J-Church:
Outbound train torn overhead wires at Clipper street. We can see the giant burn mark on the rear window where the wire made contact with the train. We can also see the power line (the lowest on the right side) stopping at the train power grip before going to the ground.

No comments from the MUNI driver. Hearsay is that everybody is fine and was successfully disembarqued. Power line crew at the scene at 3:30pm.
