Union Station evacuated after alarm sounds

Union Station was briefly evacuated at mid-day Monday after an alarm went off in one of the stores.

An Amtrak spokeswoman said the alarm sounded around noon, and the station was evacuated as a precautionary measure. People were allowed back into the station about 30 minutes later, and no trains were delayed, the spokeswoman said. The reason for the alarm sounding remained unclear.
