Service was shut down to the Beacon Hill light-rail station Wednesday afternoon as officials investigated smoke coming from the station but found no fire.
Firefighters arrived at the station around 2:45 p.m. and ventilated smoke, then handed control back to Sound Transit around 3:20 p.m., according to tweets from the Seattle Fire Department.
Service to the station was shut down for about an hour, and riders were told to take buses to connect to the Sodo and Mount Baker stations, according to Sound Transit.
It was the second hiccup for service at Beacon Hill this week: Some riders who use the light-rail station expressed frustration on social media Wednesday, as all four elevators at the station shut down Monday afternoon, forcing trains to skip the stop through Tuesday morning. Riders depend entirely on the elevators at the station, which is 160 feet deep, and stairs exist for emergencies and maintenance workers only.
