Durban - Two trains belonging to Metrorail were set alight in Durban on Wednesday allegedly by irate passengers.
One train was burned at the Durban station and another was torched at the Berea station around 7pm in what Metrorail has described as an act of arson.
At the Berea station, three coaches were set alight, one was burnt extensively and another suffered partial damage. The third had minor damage.
No injuries were reported and all the passengers made it out before the fire engulfed the train.
Thabile Kunene, the PR manager at Metrorail, said they believed the trains were deliberately set alight.
