MANILA — A suspension of LRT-2 operation was immediately announced after a power transformer caught fire between Anonas and Katipunan stations.
Light Rail Transit Authority Spokesperson Hernando Cabrera said at around 11:20 a.m the LRT-2 power transformer “tripped” and emitted smoke along Katipunan Avenue.
Cabrera said that it is unlikely to resume our operations for Katipunan and Santolan stations. Both stations located near several schools like the University of the Philippines, Ateneo de Manila University and Miriam College.
He also said no one is injured and the LRTA did not receive any report that the fire was intentional.
