WASHINGTON (AP) Metro officials say normal service has been restored on the Red Line after an arcing insulator caused delays.

A train operator reported the arcing insulator near Dupont Circle about 1:30 p.m. Monday on the outbound track.

Red Line trains shared one track between Dupont Circle and Van Ness-UDC Metrorail stations while crews extinguished the insulator.

Normal service resumed shortly before 3 p.m.
