Update: Normal service resumes on Green and Yellow lines
UPDATE (3:30 p.m.): Totally normal service resumed at about 3 p.m., according to Metro spokeswoman Angela Gates, after smoke on tracks near the Gallery Place station.
A preliminary investigation reveals that a burning insulator caused the smoke, Gates said. No one was injured, and the smoke has completely dissipated.
ORIGINAL (2:27 p.m.): Smoke in a tunnel means no Green or Yellow Lines service between L'Enfant Plaza and Mt. Vernon Square.
Shuttle bus service is being established between the L'Enfant, Archives-Navy Memorial, Gallery Place-Chinatown, and Mt. Vernon Metro stations.
The first report, of smoke at Gallery Place, came in about 1:45 pm, according to Metro spokeswoman Angela Gates.
"We don't know what the cause of the smoke is yet," Gates said.
DC Fire crews are on scene, along with Metro Transit Police.
