Mumbai: A monorail train caught fire at Mysore Colony station in Chembur on Thursday morning. Services have been stopped immediately after the incident took place, and are likely to resume only in the afternoon.

Sources said that the fire broke out at 5.20 am and was brought under control in around 40 minutes. Three fire brigade vehicles were rushed to the spot to put it out.

As it was early morning, there was no rush at the station when the fire broke out. No commuters were injured.

On condition of anonymity a fire brigade official said, “Prima facie, it looks like the fire was caused by a short circuit.”
