A localized power outage at Newark Liberty International Airport brought a portion of AirTrain service to a halt this afternoon. Officials say the outage stopped one occupied train between Terminal A and Terminal B at the airport just before 1:30 p.m.

Eyewitness News is told about a dozen passengers on that one train were walked on the tracks from the stopped train to the nearest terminal.

Bus service was being provided for the affected section of AirTrain.

It was not immediately known what caused the localized power outage. The Port Authority did not have an estimated time of service restoration.
