Rhapsody informed its members today that a fire at one of their partner facilities are causing playback issues for some of their members.

"Some of you may be experiencing an interruption in playback within the service due to a fire at one of our partner facilities. We are working hard to resolve issues for affected customers and apologize for the inconvenience," Rhapsody informed via email.

It's not clear if that fire burned their servers, or just caused a power outage.

Update (November 25, 2013): The issue has been resolved. Here's an archive of Rhapsody's messages regarding this issue:

  2. "The issue has been resolved and playback is back to normal.
