A downtown portion of Metro’s red line closed Thursday morning after reports of smoke in the tunnels.

Around 7:30 a.m., Metro officials shut down the line between the Gallery Place and Dupont Circle stations.

“We are currently working with WMATA investigating report of possible smoke in tunnel between Metro Center & Farragut North Stations,” D.C. Fire and EMS tweeted out around 7:45 a.m.

Metro suggests downtown customers consider walking from Farragut North to Farragut West for alternate service via the Blue, Orange or Silver lines.
