Four coaches of the Patna-Mokama MEMU (Mainline Electric Multiple Unit) Express passenger train were gutted in a mid-night fire on Wednesday. 

The coaches caught fire when the train was stationed in the yard. Two engines of the train were also totally damaged in fire. 

"Patna-Mokama MEMU Passenger train reached Mokama on Tuesday night at 11 pm in Patna. It was stationed in the railway yard of Mokama Station. Suddenly, flames were spotted in two bogies at 1 am on Wednesday. An attempt was made to extinguish the fire, but it engulfed two more coaches," the CPRO said.

Fire tenders later managed to douse the fire, and no one was injured. The fire has, however, not affected the railway operations.

More details are awaited.
