Panic as a fire breaks out on Express train in Odisha: report

Bhubaneswar: Passengers rushed out of Durg-Puri Express on Thursday in Odisha's Nuapada district when a fire was spotted in one of the air-conditioned coaches.

The East Coast Railway said no casualties were reported from the incident.

Railway stated that the smoke was detected in the B3 coach of the train as it reached the Khariar Road station this evening.

"The brake pads caught fire due to friction and incomplete release of brakes. The fire was confined to brake pads. There was no damage," the railway said.

The problem was rectified in less than an hour and the train departed the station at 11 pm, it said.

It occurred days after one of the worst train tragedies in the country at the Bahanaga Bazar station in Odisha's Balasore district, which claimed 288 lives and left more than 1,100 people injured after a crash involving Bengaluru-Howrah Superfast Express, Shalimar-Chennai Central Coromandel Express and a goods train.
