At least 20 people were killed, including a pregnant woman, and four were injured after a train caught fire in southern India early today.
Authorities rushed the injured people to a hospital and were investigating the cause of the crash.

The fire appeared to have been caused by a short circuit in the train’s wiring.

The train caught fire early this morning while it was roughly 200 kilometers north of Hyderabad, the capital of Andhra Pradesh.
The passengers pulled the emergency chain to stop the train when the fire broke out and passengers jumped out of the car.
