"Hot brakes" caused smoke, delays at Midtown Marta station

ATLANTA - Marta passengers at the Midtown station were evacuated from a train after smoke was detected inside of the terminal.

Sgt. Cortez Stafford with Atlanta Fire-Rescue said the cause of the smoke is due to hot brakes on the track. 

Eric Burton, a Marta spokesperson, a single-track was running, but normal services will be phased back in as soon as possible.

The disruption caused a 10 to 15 minute delay.

No injuries were reported.
