Smoke clears the T

Hundreds of people were evacuated from an Orange Line train as smoke started to fill the tunnel it was in Thursday morning.

Hundreds of people were evacuated from an Orange Line train as smoke started to fill the tunnel it was in Thursday morning.

Commuters were led through a tunnel back to the North Station platform about 200 feet away as dozens of firefighters raced to the station to put out what was reported as a small grease fire.

A T spokesman said there was no fire, but rather a hose to a greaser line broke. Greasers are used to lubricate the rails.

“Smoke was generated when the train traveled over it,” said Joe Pesaturo, a T spokesman.

Service was restored and no serious injuries were reported.
