MOSCOW, January 2 (Itar-Tass) —— Traffic on Moscow metro's green /Zamoskvoretskaya/ line has resumed after an interval caused by a short-circuit power equipment failure, which produced a smoke screen at the Kolomenskaya station, a spokesman for the Moscow City branch of the federal Ministry for Emergency Situations and Civil Defense /EMERCOM/ told Itar-Tass.
A signal on smoke screening at the station came to the central switchboard of the city's 01 Firefighting Service at 10:34.
"In the course of examination of the track leading from Kolomenskaya towards the Avtozavodskaya station and the city center, a team of firefighters and rescuers found a short-circuit failure of equipment in the compensatory box that hadn't grown over into blaze, however," the spokesman said.
"There was no evacuation of people but the traffic towards the downtown was suspended," he said. "It was restored at 13:34 and the Kolomenskaya station returned to the scheduled mode of operations."
