DENVER (AP) - Trains between concourses at Denver International Airport were temporarily halted after a fire alarm went off in an office building.

Airport spokesman Heath Montgomery tells The Denver Post (https://goo.gl/83Xf7V ) that smoke was reported on the 10th floor of the building Wednesday afternoon, triggering a 30-minute evacuation of the building and the shutdown of the train system.

The building houses the airport’s operations center, including the office that manages the train system.

Firefighters searched and cleared the area.

Montgomery says passengers were asked to walk to concourse A from the security checkpoint in the main terminal. From there, they were bused to concourses B and C.

Train service resumed at about 4:15 p.m.
