Lucknow: A fire broke out in the engine of a coal-laden goods train in Uttar Pradesh`s Ambedkar Nagar district on Thursday, railway officials said. No casualty was reported in the incident.
"It could have been a major mishap, but with the timely intervention of railway and fire-fighting officials it was averted and the fire could not spread to the wagons from the engine of the train," VK Singh, government railway police (GRP) inspector told reporters in Ambedkar Nagar, some 200 km from here.
