Subway service was temporarily shut down along a stretch of Line 2 early Sunday morning after sparks began falling from the Bloor Viaduct.

According to police, some sort of electrical short caused the sparks to begin flying at around 12:30 a.m.

A TTC spokesperson told The Canadian Press that two large cables burned through to the deck that the train's rails sit upon, causing the sparks to fly.

About 75 people had to be led back to Broadview Station on foot from the train by transit workers, the spokesperson said.

As a result, subway service was suspended from St. George to Woodbine stations while crews worked to fix the problem. Service then resumed as scheduled on Sunday morning.
