New Delhi: Two coaches of the Andhra Pradesh Superfast AC Express caught fire near Birla Nagar in Gwalior on Monday. The train was on its way from New Delhi to Vishakhapatnam. No casualties have been reported yet.

The fire started from the B-6 bogie and quickly engulfed the adjacent coach. "The fire spread from B-6 to B-5 coaches. Six coaches were segregated and sent to Gwalior. All passengers in the affected coaches were evacuated, No injuries have been reported so far," said Ved Prakash, director, publicity, Railway Board.

The train was sent on its way after the damaged coaches were segregated and the blaze controlled, officials said. Sources said a short-circuit may have led to the fire but investigations are still on to determine the exact cause.

Earlier, there were reports that coaches of a Rajdhani express caught fire but they were found to be incorrect.
