Bethesda station has reopened
UPDATE, 8:03 p.m.: The station has reopened, according to wmata.com.
A electrical insulator overheated and produced smoke Friday night on the Red Line track, forcing officials to close the Bethesda Metrorail station.
No injuries were reported. The smoke happened on the outbound track between Bethesda and Medical Center, Metro officials said.
Montgomery County firefighters asked that trains be shut down in both directions, while firefighters worked to ventilate the station from smoky conditions, said Asst. Chief Scott Graham, a spokesman.
Montgomery County fire officials respond to the station and asked Metro to close it.
Expect delays in both directions.
