Trains to Jerusalem and Modiin have been halted as a fire blazes in an area near Modiin.

The Tel Aviv-Jerusalem train will stop at the airport and not continue toward the capital, says Israel Rail. And trains to Modiin from Nahariya and Tel Aviv will also stop at the airport and not reach Modiin.

Four firefighting teams are battling the flames at the scene, where there is not currently believed to be any danger to residential areas.
