Passengers panic as smoke fills CTA Blue Line station

CHICAGO (SCS) — It was a turbulent scene at a CTA Blue Line station on Saturday afternoon when passengers jumped off the train after some people reported seeing smoke.

Several people posted videos of the chaos at the Logan Square stop on social media. Videos show people running for safety as the station is filled with smoke.

Several panicked passengers said they believed the commotion was caused by someone with a gun.

CTA officials said the problem was due to a mechanical problem. Trains were delayed for a short time, but service was restored.

No one was hurt.

It comes less than two weeks after a man detonated a smoke bomb on a New York City subway train before shooting at least 10 people.
