Trains on Paris-Marseille Line Suspended Due to Massive Wildfire

02:03 - 16.07.2017

The train traffic between Paris and French southern city of Marseille was suspended after a massive wildfire broke out in the south of France and swept over 1200 acres of forest, local media reported Sunday.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Over 800 firemen are engaged in the fire extinguishing operation as the wildfire continues to spread because of the strong wind, according to the France Bleu radio station.

The trains from other French cities also arrived at Marseille with delays, the radio station reported.

The local residents in southern France were instructed not to leave their houses; no one was injured in the fire.


As of 12:05am EDT the report still isn't at Google News.
