LONDON, England (CNN) -- A fire broke out on a freight train Thursday as it traveled in the tunnel under the English Channel, Eurotunnel officials said.
The Channel Tunnel has freight and passengers trains running through it.
No passenger trains were going through the tunnel at the time of the fire, they said. It is unclear if the fire has been contained.
People inside the Chunnel were evacuated through a service tunnel that runs between the two train-carrying tunnels, the officials said.
I believe this is the second fire in the tunnel's history. I hope it is not shut down for very long.
