2000 people were evacuated around 16h this Sunday afternoon at the station Saint-Charles according to the fire marshals of Marseille.

According to the communication of the battalion, the alert comes from a “suspicious sound coming from the ceiling of a wagon of one of the TGV at quay”.

As a safety measure, all people in the train and people in the station were asked to go out.

For now, we do not know the origin of this noise. However, it is advisable to avoid the sector to allow law enforcement and rescue to perform their work in the best conditions.

Police and fire-fighters were deployed around 4 pm and the 2,000 people present in the SNCF station were evacuated as a precaution.

Marseille firefighters are on site to secure the perimeter and find the source of this noise.

On Twitter, the SNCF informs passengers that luggage has been abandoned on board a train, requiring intervention, and that traffic should resume gradually around 18h.
