261 Passengers Evacuate After Fire Breaks Out Underneath Amtrak Train


A fire underneath an Amtrak train forced 261 passengers to evacuate in Baltimore, Maryland, Fox News reported Thursday.

Palmetto No. 90 was at the Baltimore-Washington International Airport station when the fire was detected, which led Amtrak service to be stopped, Fox News reported.

There have been no reports of a cause or injuries to passengers or crew members, according to Fox News.

Palmetto No. 90 runs between New York City and Georgia, according to Fox News.

Amtrak didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment from the Daily Caller News Foundation.

At the end of 2020, Amtrak was $1.6 billion in debt. However, Democratic President Joe Biden’s signed a stimulus package in March that gave the national railroad company $1.7 billion in taxpayer money.

Hunter Biden also served on the Amtrak board of directors from July 2006 to February 2009, according to the Associated Press.
