Fire at Turnham Green shuts down District and Piccadilly lines

Severe delays across the whole Piccadilly Line

A small fire at Turnham Green tube station has caused rush hour chaos this morning on the District and Piccadilly lines, with both shut between Acton Town and Barons Court westbound.

Transport for London say there have been severe delays on the Piccadilly line as a result, and minor delays on the District line.

There are also minor delays on the Circle and Hammersmith & City lines. Underground tickets are being accepted on London buses and the Elizabeth Line.

London Fire Brigade told The Chiswick Calendar the fire had been a small track fire about 300 metres away from the station, reported to them at 07.34. They had it extinguished by 09.23, but it burned long enough to cause disruption to rush hour services.
