Sensing the danger, the station master asked the driver to place the train out of the danger zone.
Railway Protection Force (RPF) and Government Railway Police jawans swung into action and tried to tame the flame with the help of local people.
Fire tenders rushed to the spot and douse the flame. No casualty was reported as the people residing in the huts took shelter in safer places seeing the flame.
