The traffic department has said on Twitter that the highway coming to the area of the railway station has been closed to facilitate the people's security and relief teams and people should take alternative routes.
Meanwhile, security agencies have appealed to the public to stay away from the area of fire. Security agencies say the gathering of spectators near the railway station hinders the work of relief teams on one side and smoke on the other hand may affect people.
According to Reuters news agency, the video on Al Arabiya TV's Twitter account shows clouds of black smoke appearing from the train station and helicopters around it.
