CHICAGO (STMW) - Red Line trains are experiencing residual delays after service was temporarily stopped due to a report of smoke near the Clark and Division stop, according to the CTA.

A still and box alarm and an EMS Plan 1 was called about 9:30 p.m. for a report of smoke in the subway, Fire Media Affairs spokesman Joe Roccasalva said. Ten minutes later, the alarm and EMS Plan 1 was called off when smoke was not found.

Red Line trains in both directions were temporarily rerouted to elevated tracks about 9:30 p.m., but normal service was restored with “residual delays” as of about 9:50 p.m., according to CTA alerts

An EMS Plan 1 sends five ambulances to the scene.
