CHICAGO (CBS) -- About two dozen riders on the CTA Red Line had to be moved to shuttle buses Thursday evening after a train derailed at the Howard terminal in Rogers Park.

The derailment caused a power outage, and 25 passengers ended up getting stuck on a Red Line train near the Morse stop, also in Rogers Park.

Firefighters helped them all get off safely. No injuries were reported.

The Chicago Transit Authority said crews were working to restore service as of late Thursday.

In addition to the Red Line being disrupted, the Purple Line to Evanston and the Yellow Line to Skokie were shut down altogether Thursday night.

As of before 10 p.m., Red Line trains were not running north of the Thorndale stop. Shuttle buses were put into service between Howard and Thorndale in both directions.
