Smoke alert disrupts metro services

LINE 9 Metro services were suspended for about 20 minutes yesterday after a fire alert at Xujiahui Station. Passengers on a train and others waiting on the platform were evacuated after smoke was spotted.

Metro officials said a machine had caught fire in an area under construction to link the station to Line 11.

The fire was quickly extinguished but not before smoke had spread to the main station and an alarm had been raised. The incident happened about an hour before evening rush hour.
