A section of tunnel collapsed Sunday in the Moscow subway and a fire erupted on a train, officials said. Emergency Situations Ministry spokesman Viktor Beltsov said that a concrete section fell on a train, triggering a fire. There was no immediate information on casualties. The accident occurred on a section of subway between Sokol and Voikovskaya stations in north-central Moscow. Passengers were being evacuated, Beltsov said.
