article imageRush hour train fire at London Victoria, mass disruption

London - A fire on board a train at London's Victoria Station has caused mass disruption at the height of Thursday morning's rush hour as the busy station was evacuated.
The BBC reported London Victoria Station had to be evacuated as a fire broke out on a Gatwick Express train. Fire engines were sent to the scene by the London Fire Brigade.
Southern Rail has confirmed that no one was hurt, but commuters will face long delays as no trains will be running from the station as the smoke needs to clear.
Thousands of commuters have been left stranded according to the Telegraph. Tom Edwards, who was in the station at the time of the fire, said: ''There was just a little bit of flames by the wheels. They put it out and then started chucking everybody out of the building.
There was no panic. It could have got pretty bad if they hadn't done something about it straight away.''
The fire comes just one day after a helicopter crashed at London's Vauxhall.
