A fallen piece of steel shut down Port Authority of Allegheny County's light-rail service in Downtown on Friday morning and disrupted service for much of the day.

Port Authority stopped T light-rail service between the First Avenue Garage and Wood Street stations about 7 a.m. after steel fell from an overhead parking garage near Fourth Avenue and knocked out a power line.

The line fell across the tracks, causing some sparking and a small fire, but no one was injured.

Workers quickly repaired the line, but spent much of the day working to stabilize a crumbling section of the overhead garage so service could be restored. Port Authority resumed service on one track by noon and restored full service by the afternoon rush hours.
