    Witnesses at London’s Parsons Green underground train station say an explosion sent a fireball through a District Line carriage on Friday morning. They describe victims with facial burns and people injured in a stampede.

    Commuters are reporting the explosion stemmed from a fire in a bucket, although the contents of the bucket are not known. Images circulating on social media show what appears to be a burning bucket inside a shopping bag on the floor of the train. RT.com has not been able to verify these reports.
