WASHINGTON (AP) Authorities are responding to a small electrical fire at the Metro Center station.

D.C. fire department spokesman Pete Piringer says a track insulator caught fire Friday morning and sent smoke through the tunnel. Piringer says crews briefly evacuated the station as they worked to control the smoke. No one was injured.

Metro says red line trains are sharing the same track between the Farragut North and Gallery Place stops.
