Blown motor causes smoke at Boston subway stop

BOSTON (AP) — A blown motor on a train entering a Boston subway station briefly caused smoke in the station.

A spokesman for the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority say a train entering Andrew Station on the Red Line on Tuesday afternoon experienced a motor problem, which created some smoke.

The train was removed from service and the smoke was cleared by ventilation fans.

The T also tweeted that the tracks were inspected.

The incident caused about a 15-minute gap in northbound service, but normal service has since been restored.
