Passengers were left choking as the smoke engulfed the carriage in Tsim Sha Tsui
A fire broke out on Hong Kong's metro system earlier this evening, causing rush hour chaos among commuters. According to the media, the first vehicle of the train caught fire, but it was put out later.
The station remains closed and the police have deployed an anti-terrorism team. Police are not ruling out that the incident may have been a case of attempted self-immolation.
Public broadcaster RTHK reported the suspect, surnamed Cheung, had said nothing and tried to set himself on fire using flammable liquid.
A video posted on social media shows a man lying on the platform with his pants are on fire, whilst the public attempt to put it out.
Another report, by the South China Morning Post, claimed the man declared he would burn passengers to death before launching a Molotov cocktail into the carriage. Please allow more time for travel. SCMP reports that no arrests have been made whilst HKFP state that one man was arrested for arson but is undergoing surgery due to his injuries.

"Some people thought there was an explosion, many people were screaming". "We believe he was blabbering. the things he was saying was not very coherent", said Yau Tsim, District Commander Kwok Pak-chung.
The MTR last suffered a major fire incident in 2004 when an arson attack resulted in 14 minor injuries.
