PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Passengers have been evacuated from a Philadelphia-to-New Jersey commuter train after an apparent motor problem that caused two train cars to fill with smoke.

Officials said it was shortly after 5 p.m. Monday when the motor shorted-out on a six-car train headed eastbound toward the Benjamin Franklin Bridge.

No injuries have been reported. The Philadelphia Fire Department evacuated several dozen people off the train at the base of the bridge.

PATCO spokesman Tim Ireland said train service has been shut down and rush hour passengers should expect significant delays.
