MANILA, Philippines — The operations of Light Rail Transit Line 2 would remain suspended on Friday, October 4, after a fire broke out between two of its stations.

In its advisory, the LRT Authority said LRT-2 would not resume full and partial line operations on Thursday evening and Friday due to several technical and safety concerns.

“Passengers are advised to find alternative modes of transportation,” the management said.

Earlier, a fire hit between the Katipunan and Anonas stations of LRT-2. This was caused by the “tripping off” of rectifier substation 5 located at Katipunan Station.
