Faulty ventilation suspected of causing Port Authority smoke

Saturday, January 26, 2013

There was a bit of a setback for commuters at Port Authority on Saturday when the bus terminal was evacuated after someone spotted smoke at about 7:40 p.m.

Bus riders had to wait outside as firefighters checked it out.

After about 30 minutes, the building was re-opened, and the buses started running again.

The investigation is ongoing, but a faulty ventilation unit is suspected of causing the smoke.

No injuries were reported.
