The Metro SubwayLink remained closed Monday after crews tackled an electrical fire Friday in Owings Mills that prompted a systemwide shutdown, the Maryland Transit Administration said.

A bus bridge is in place to accommodate travelers, making all station stops. Customers are asked to plan ahead and allow extra time for travel.

The Maryland Transit Administration said it is conducting a thorough inspection of the electrical fire, and that it’s working to restore service as quickly and as safely as possible.

The subway was closed shortly after 5 a.m. Friday from Owings Mills Station to Johns Hopkins Station, the MTA said. Baltimore County fire officials confirmed the systemwide shutdown and fire around 7:30

Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. crews assisted at the scene, officials said. It is unclear how long the shutdown will last.

No injuries have been reported in connection with the electrical fire.
