MANILA, Philippines — LRT-2 operations were suspended Thursday after a power rectifier tripped and caught fire in between stations.


Atty. Hernando Cabrera told INQUIRER.net in a text message that power rectifier located in between Santolan and Katipunan stations was the cause of the problem.


Operations have been suspended as of 11:24 a.m., according to the LRT-2’s Twitter post.

Cabrera added that the line’s management is also looking at how train operations will resume immediately without using the Katipunan station.

“Doon sa ating standard operating procedure, pagka-nagkakaroon ng problema sa ating Katipunan area, pwede nating maibalik ang ating serbisyo using Recto hanggang Cubao or pwedeng Recto hanggang Anonas,” Cabrera said in an interview over DZBB.


[When it comes to our standard operating procedure, when a problem arises in the Katipunan station, we can fully restore our service using Recto until Cubao, or Recto until Anonas stations.]  /muf
