Mobile Phone Charger Explodes, Prompts Evacuation at London's Tower Hill Station

British Transport Police said Tuesday that London's Tower Hill station was evacuated after a mobile phone charger exploded, causing a small fire on a train.

The reported blast occurred on a tube train near Tower Hill station and was followed by a fire and an acidic smell, according to the Daily Mail. Eyewitnesses said that a small battery exploded in a passenger's bag on a train, causing a fire.

Tower Hill station has been evacuated, and there were reports at the scene of panic leading to a small stampede.

British Transport Police said on Twitter that the incident is not "suspicious," adding that the incident was likely caused by the overheating of a mobile phone charger.

​The incident comes amid the "severe" security threat in the United Kingdom. Earlier in the month, a blast hit Parsons Green tube station, leaving some 30 people injured. The Daesh terrorist group claimed responsibility for the attack.
