    Plumes of smoke surrounded a Metrobus in Tenleytown Tuesday evening due to an oil leak, Metro officials said.

    The Route 31 bus to Potomac Park was leaking oil, causing a large plume of smoke at approximately 8 p.m. The bus did not catch on fire, but there was a mechanical issue.

    Eight customers were onboard at the time and no one was injured, according to Metro officials.

    The bus has been taken out of service.
