Not voting is stupid!

Yesterday at around 6 pm, I was on my way home from the bus stop when I looked at across at train in motion and saw one carriage burst into flames, about 200 meters before New Canada station. The flames were as high as 10 metres in the sky. As to whether any person got injured I don't know because the driver of the train stopped the train and everybody jumped out and some walked towards the station. One guy from the station came and tried to set the other carriages free from the burning one.
