A section of the Loop was closed to traffic Monday morning while firefighters answered a call.

They received reports of a fire in the CTA Red Line tunnel near State and Lake.

Several trucks and ambulances were called to the scene as a precaution. Officials say someone mistook at flickering light in the tunnel for a fire around 9:20 a.m.

Trains were operating normally by 10 a.m.
