Jerusalem firefighters successfully responded to an emergency along the light rail tracks on Monday evening, which was one of the first times the train was stopped for an incident since the train began testing along the entire tracks.

Firefighters responded to a report of heavy smoke from an abandoned building on Jaffa Road next to the Mahaneh Yehuda market.

The blaze was quickly extinguished, but a nearby butcher shop had to be evacuated because of the smoke.
