There are no casualties in the fire that broke out last night on the Sofia-Varna high-speed train in the Kaspichan area. Only one of the engine drivers was slightly injured – he injured his hand trying to detach the locomotive from the first car. 

The fire has been extinguished and all 50 passengers are in good condition and have already been evacuated. 
Today, a second inspection will be made at the scene of the accident, which will be attended by experts from the railway company, in order to determine the causes of the fire.
