Fire halts Stockholm train traffic

Platforms at Stockholm's Central Train Station were evacuated Sunday afternoon following a blaze on a train at one of the platforms. The train was empty and no-one was injured in the fire, and emergency services quickly extinguished the blaze, which hit an X2000 high speed train.

Power was cut to the train lines, meaning all traffic to and from Stockholm is at a stand still.
