Eurostar says to reopen tunnel link after fire alert

PARIS, May 15 (BestGrowthStock) – Eurostar (GETP.PA: ) said it had
reopened one of the Channel Tunnel’s two tunnels after a fire
alert briefly closed the undersea rail link between Britain and
France early on Saturday.

“We have been authorised to reopen the tunnel,” a
spokeswoman for Eurostar told Reuters. She said the northern
tunnel had been reopened but the south tunnel, where the fire
alert was reported, was still closed and was being investigated.

The spokeswoman said the link had been closed as a
precaution after smoke had been seen in the southern tunnel
following the passage of a train.
