Auf der Schnellstrecke zwischen Frankfurt und Köln hat ein Wagen eines ICE Feuer gefangen. Warum der letzte Zugteil in Höhe der Ortschaft Dierdorf (Kreis Neuwied) in Brand geriet, war zunächst noch unklar. Nach Angaben der Bundespolizei in Koblenz brachten die Rettungskräfte 510 Menschen aus dem Zug. Die Passagiere kamen in ein nahe gelegenes Gemeindehaus, nach Angaben der Deutschen Bahn wurden sie mit Bussen dorthin gebracht. Verletzt wurde niemand

 

 

 

Edit:  Police are now saying that 5 people are lightly injured.

 

All trains are being diverted via the Rhein route with 80+ extra minutes required.  Depending on the level of damage to tracks, overhead wires and signalling, it could take some time to repair.

Woah! I was waiting to catch an S-Bahn at that time yesterday and did hear an announcement about a fire and a delay but hadn't caught which line was delayed. Some girl next to me was on her cell phone saying, 'I'm taking the bus because there's a two hour delay,' but then our S-Bahn pulled up, only 5 minutes late, so she boarded with me. Our track was next to an ICE track but further up near Bonn.
