More than ten travelers suffered burns when they jumped from a train that was closed in by a forest fire northwest of the Spanish city of Valencia.
Three passengers were seriously injured, Spanish media reported.
The train stopped when the driver thought it had become too dangerous to continue. She wanted to drive back. Some travelers feared the train would be engulfed in flames. They panicked, opened the doors, and went outside.
Seeing that they were surrounded by fire, they climbed back on the train. But they already had burns then. One victim was taken to a hospital by helicopter.
In the meantime, the question is getting louder for an explanation as to why trains still drove through the area with the forest fire.
