Is there a follow up to this story? I'm wondering what happened.

Apparently an engine caught fire somehow and it spread.

There was some discussion why people couldn't get out of the trains.

The train company said the passengers panicked and didn't use the emergency exit switches.

The passengers said the doors melted shut from the fire and so the emergency exit switches didn't work.

The latter seems to be the case.

Terrible news. I hope no one was seriously hurt from this accident. Did they get to know how the fire started?
