CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Normal service is resuming on the Blue Line on Thursday afternoon after an ammonia leak temporarily suspended service to O’Hare.

The O’Hare terminal closed at 8:55 a.m. after a leak was detected, CTA spokeswoman Catherine Hosinski said.

According to Fire Media Affairs, an ammonia leak was found in a storage room at O’Hare, and part of the area was evacuated. A spokesperson for the city’s Department of Aviation could not be reached for comment.

Blue Line trains were being turned at Rosemont, and shuttle buses were operating in both directions between Rosemont and O’Hare for nearly four hours, according to the CTA.

As of 12:40 p.m., normal service is resuming on the Blue Line. Shuttle service will operate until 1 p.m., Hosinski said.
