    Reports of smoke odors in the Blue Line Belmont station temporarily shut off power between California and Montrose Friday morning.

    The station was evacuated as a precaution, and firefighters and crews arrived to walk the tracks and investigate the report. 

    They pinpointed the source of the odor, but no smoke was found. 

    A bus shuttle is still in place from California to Montrose to transport riders. Delays are expected.

    No injuries were reported.
