All the passengers of the train were rescued and fire tenders were rushed to the site, an official of the railway police said.

After nearly fours hours of halt, the affected coaches were cleared and the train was allowed to proceed to its destination. The rail traffic on the route also remained affected for nearly four hours.

Railway officials said the cause of the fire is being investigated.
