Normal subway service has resumed on Line 1 following a report of a fire at Union Station.

The TTC briefly halted all service between Union and Osgoode stations as crews investigated the report.

Toronto police said in a tweet earlier that trains were evacuated but no one was injured.

Later, police said it was a "mechanical issue."

TTC spokesperson Brad Ross told CBC Radio's Metro Morning that when a fire is reported, the scene must be cleared and service halted in order for crews to investigate.

"It's an incredibly dangerous situation that we take no chances with," Ross said on Monday.
