A fire disrupted one of Seoul's major subway lines on Wednesday morning.

An elderly man apparently set fire to a subway train at Dogok Station on Subway Line No. 3 at around 10:52 a.m.

The arsonist fled the scene but was soon apprehended by police.

"No one was seriously hurt as about 370 passengers immediately evacuated and the fire was extinguished in about six minutes," a subway operator said.
