Metro system briefly shut by smoke
Smoke from a train forced a brief stoppage in Metro service Sunday.
MONTREAL - Metro service was interrupted in Montreal Sunday afternoon at around 1 p.m. when service on the yellow, orange and green lines was stopped for 15- 20 minutes after smoke was detected from beneath a car at the Berri-UQAM metro station.
Firefighters examined the smoke but found no fire and the situation was addressed and declared safe.
The Berri-UQAM station was then ventilated to clear the air and train service returned soon after.
