Fire breaks out in goods train wagon at Mathura station

A fire broke out in a wagon of a Rae Bareli-bound goods train at the Mathura junction station today, a railway official said.

The fertilizer-laden train was coming from Bhopal, Senior DCM and PRO DRM office Agra (NCR) Sanchit Tyagi said.

The fire started at 5.25 pm and was doused by 5.54 pm, he said.

Immediately after the wagon caught fire, it was detached from the train and the fire brigade was informed, Tyagi said.

However, the fire was almost doused by rail staff, before the fire tender's reached the spot, he said.

The wagon which caught fire had some paper in it, Tyagi said.

"Team of supervisors would probe the incident," the officer said.
