Fire traps men

More than 30 Spanish construction workers were trapped for five hours last week near Madrid when a train removing construction materials from a tunnel being bored caught fire.

The workers, from Gestor de Infraestructuras Ferroviarias, took refuge in an air pocket 3 km inside the tunnel before being rescued.
