Fire at Harrow on the Hill causes delays on the Metropolitan Line

The Metropolitan Line was temporarily suspended tonight for around 30 mins due to a fire alert at Harrow-on-the-Hill station.

TfL asked people to use the Jubilee line to complete journeys. Tickets are being accepted on London Buses.

Commuters took to the socials to find out what’s happening as they remained stuck on the trains.

One person tweeted to Harrow Fire Brigade: “Hi is there any update on the Harrow on the Hill track fire – currently stuck on the met line.”

TfL tweeted: “Hello. The Metropolitan line remains suspended due to a fire alert at Harrow on the Hill, I’ve yet to be given a time for the resumption.”

As of 21:44, the Met Line is back up and running but severely delayed.

London Fire Brigade said in a statement, “Firefighters were called to reports of a trackside fire at Harrow on the Hill Underground Station yesterday evening.

“Crews tackled a small fire in a junction box. There were no reports of any injuries.

“The Brigade was called at 2044 and the fire was under control by 2145. One fire engine from Wembley Fire Station was at the scene.”
