A Seoul subway train caught fire earlier Sunday, leading to an evacuation of about 100 passengers. No casualties were reported.
According to the fire authority, a train passing through Seoul's southern district of Jamsil caught fire around 6:30 a.m., which was extinguished in 30 minutes. The operation of the subway line was fully normalized at 7:50 a.m.
An official from Seoul Metro, the line operator, said the fire is presumed to have been caused by a power failure.
Some passengers said they escaped by opening the emergency door after seeing smoke.
"We did not hear any announcement about evacuating the train," a passenger told Yonhap News Agency. "Passengers escaped by themselves after seeing the smoke and saw the fire after evacuating the train." (Yonhap)
