    Firefighters have arrived at the scene and are still trying to extinguish the fire, according to media reports.

    A fire has broken out at the Al-Haramain train station in Jeddah, the Arab News reported. The cause of the fire has not yet been established, reports say.

    At least five people were injured in the fire, according to the official Twitter account of the Mecca region. Reports say that 16 medical teams were working at the scene.

    Photos and videos of black smoke rising above the station have appeared online.

    A Twitter user has posted a video showing firefighters extinguishing the fire by spraying water on the walls of the building.

    Earlier in September, Saudi Arabia called on Yemen’s internationally recognised government and the Southern Transitional Council (STC), which are sides involved in the fighting in southern Yemen, to engage in dialogue in the Saudi city of Jeddah.
