Train services between Sheung Shui and Lo Wu slightly disrupted this morning
 
At 10:32 am, a bush fire broke out north of the Sheung Shui Station (outside railway premises). To ensure safe railway operation, the upline track north of Sheung Shui was temporarily closed.
Single line operation between Sheung Shui and Lo Wu stations was introduced. As the incident took place at non-peak hours, railway service was not affected.
The fire was put out by the Fire Services Department at 11:30 am. The upline track of Sheung Shui was re-opened and train services resumed normal immediately.
