WASHINGTON (AP) Metro train operators are evacuating a blue line train that stalled near the Smithsonian station.

Metro spokeswoman Lisa Farbstein says a cable in the tunnel may have wrapped around part of the train Tuesday morning and caused some smoke. She says passengers were not in any danger.

Train operators are evacuating passengers through the rear of the train and directly onto an orange line train behind the stalled train. It will back up to the L'Enfant Plaza station.

Farbstein says orange and blue line trains will be delayed.
