Fire Alert Closes Victoria Station

A fire alert has closed Victoria station, causing severe delays on the line, according to TfL and the London Fire Brigade’s Twitter feeds.

The station was evacuated last month too after a fire under a Gatwick Express train.

There is currently no service on the Victoria Line between Warren Street and Brixton. Check TfL’s website for real-time service updates.

Update: the station has now re-opened and the line is running again, but with severe delays. LFB say no fire was found.

    You’d think the Londonist might know the difference between Victoria tube and Victoria rail stations.
