A spokesman for the Fire Service said: “We were called at 6.25am to reports of a fire in the ladies toilet on a platform. All trains have been isolated. Eight crews are currently on the scene. Crews are still on the scene. There are no more details available yet.”
Fire crews also released a picture from inside the train station, which shows bright orange burning flames on the stairway.
They shared the image on Twitter with the caption: “Picture from inside the train station here shows the conditions our firefighters are working in to keep you safe - currently working to stop the spread, please bear with us whilst we work to tackle the fire.”
Bryn Coleman, incident commander for Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service, added: “Unfortunately the fire is spreading to the roof void of the new section of the train station, and it’s now travelling across the main concourse area across the main lines into Nottingham train station.
“We’ve got in the region of 60 firefighters here at the scene and we’re fighting the fire from inside the building using breathing apparatus, hose reels and jets.
“But it is quite a significant incident we’re dealing with this morning.
“But our crews are working in quite arduous conditions at this time to try bring the fire under control, and that’s the focus of our attention at this time.”
