No trains are running at present and Virgin Trains, London Midland and London Overground services are currently affected in the area.
A Network Rail spokesperson told The Sun: “Trains are being delayed in to and out of London Euston due to a line side fire near South Hampstead which has damaged signalling equipment. Network Rail has engineers on site trying to restore services as soon as possible.”
“As a result of the fire the power supply to Euston station was temporarily cut. This led to the evacuation of the station. Customers will be let back in to the station shortly.”
