Riders ran from Copley Station yelling "fire"Saturday after flames were spotted on top of a Green Line train.

The MBTA trolley was removed from service after electrical wires on top of the train caught fire, Fox Boston reported. No one was injured.

One passenger caught the ordeal on video.

"It was kind of a mass hysteria inside. A lot of people were understandably panicked. But I turned around, whipped out my phone, and the entire top of the train was pretty much on fire," passenger Jason Kaplan told Fox Boston.
