12:22 PM CDT, September 11, 2008

A fire broke out Thursday on a train shuttling trucks in the Chunnel between England and France, suspending traffic in the undersea tunnel, officials said. All passengers were evacuated safely.

Firefighters quickly extinguished the blaze after it broke out about seven miles from the French side, said a spokesman for Eurotunnel, the company that operates the tunnel. The spokesman was not authorized to be publicly named.
