Major fire at Paris railway station, people evacuated-1Paris: A large fire broke out at a major Paris train station on Friday, with reports that firefighters were being prevented from extinguishing it, reports said.

A large plume of smoke was visible above the station and smoke was also seen inside the Gare de Lyon metro and suburban rail stations, it said.
